Ralph has been known to enjoy the odd festival but interest in Dot To Dot this year was heightened by the news that Sweet Sweet Records were hosting a stage on May 26th and Ralph's long-time favourites Duke and The Darlings were taking to it.
Manchester's fiercely independent Sweet Sweet Records will host a stage at the national Dot To Dot Festival 2017.
Sweet Sweet Records will host seven acts at No1 Watson Street on Friday May 26th as part of the Manchester leg of the three-part Dot To Dot Festival.
Music will start at with darling of BBC Introducing Liam McClair and climax with the neo-soul grooves and vocal moves of Alice Gasson, with an eclectic mix of lauded local acts in between. A free album with songs from all the acts is available to stream on Spotify:
Curated and organised by local independent label Sweet Sweet Records, the stage at No1 Watson Street boasts a wide range of musicians, and an even wider range of craft beers, with 12 taps, including Manchester beer heroes Cloudwater and Blackjack, and over 50 bottles. Attendees can also savour any of the craft pizzas on offer, with the All Day Breakfast pizza perfect for curing hangovers and getting you gig-ready.
The Sweet Sweet Records stage at No1 Watson Street is situated across from the main stage at Royal Albert Hall, and a few minutes away from other festival venues.
Alex Reed, founder of Sweet Sweet Records said: "It is simply the best way to celebrate what is happening in and around Manchester. Awesome local music and local food washed down with brilliant local beer. We have hosted many gigs for many acts, many of which in breweries, but this is the most exciting combination to date."
