Dhp Family Scoop UK Festival Award For Dot To Dot Festival

DHP Family's Dot to Dot has been named as the UK's Best Metropolitan Festival in front of a packed-out Roundhouse in London at the 10th Anniversary of the UK Festival Awards.
 
The musically eclectic festival beat off stiff competition from the 10-string shortlist of finalists which included Sheffield's Tramlines; Brighton's The Great Escape; Live at Leeds and British Summer Time Hyde Park.
 
Now in its ninth year, Dot To Dot Festival has firmly established itself as the UK's best festival for unearthing the hottest new talent around, alongside well known acts from all over the globe. Touring three of the UK's more savvy music cities - Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham - 2013 was the biggest yet with 180 artists playing across 35 stages in 24 venues supported by the first ever 'joining the dots' programme of extra events.
 
As well as new music - 2013 was led by Dry the River, Tom Odell, The 1975 and Lucy Rose - the festival has provided a glimpse of some of today's biggest acts in previous years, such as double Brits winner Ed Sheeran, The xx and Florence & The Machine.
 
DHP Family owner George Akins said: "With Dot to Dot, we have established ourselves as a leader in the urban festival field. It's gone from strength to strength since its launch in Nottingham nine years ago, allowing us to introduce it to two more cities. We're delighted that Dot to Dot - and the hard working team behind it - has now been recognised as the UK's best metropolitan festival."
 
James Drury, Managing Director of UK Festival Awards commented:  "In this, our 10th year, we had the most fiercely-fought competition for the awards yet. There were so many incredible events taking place this year that it's not surprising that 575,000 votes were cast by fans from across the world.
 
"Congratulations to all those who made it into the finals - it's no mean feat to make it into the top 10, considering over 340 festivals entered this year."
