bluedot Festival 2016

At the weekend science met music, as over 15,000 revelers descended on Jodrell Bank observatory, for the all-new bluedot festival.

The electric line-up included Jean-Michel Jarre, Caribou, Underworld, Everything Everything, Public Service Broadcasting, Mercury Rev, Ben UFO – the list goes on. Including a spectacular live artwork show by legendary music pioneer Brian Eno and a vast spectrum of hands-on activities.

The Carousel team were there in full force, taking care of the onsite Press Office, after supporting ticket sales with national and regional pre-event coverage. From a BBC News interview with Jean-Michel Jarre, to an Aiden Byrne interview with Liverpool Echo, over 80 pieces of coverage were generated in July alone.

With over 200 journalists and photographers attending, it has been a very busy weekend for Team Bluedot, who are still talking about the Lovell Telescope display.

We thought the festival was amazing, and while some might say we’re biased, we’ve got a pretty awesome Guardian review to prove it:
