The multi-venue metropolitan festival Dot to Dot will come to Nottingham to showcase new talent and upcoming artists.
Headlining the event, organised by promoter DHP Family, is Nottingham rising star Saint Raymond whose single I Want You entered the top 40 in 2014.
Also on the bill are singer-songwriter Rae Morris, Irish pop due Hudson Taylor and Birmingham indie poppers Swim Deep.
Promoter Anton Lockwood said: “Dot to Dot offers is the chance for emerging artists to play new cities, different stages and stand in front of new audiences and win them over.
“There is a huge demand from new artists to play at Dot to Dot which speaks volumes about the reputation the festival has in being a taste maker and supporter of the best emerging talent. We always hope we can continue to play a part in the career of these artists.”
