DHP Family’s director of promotions Anton Lockwood said: “We’re especially pleased to have been chosen as the best festival for emerging talent.

“Over the 13 years of its existence, growing new artists has always been at the absolute core of what Dot to Dot is about, and we’ve seen many artists go on to huge success after gracing our stages.

“We will renew our search for the finest new talent with even more vigour now our success in doing so has been recognised!”
