Dot To Dot – A Very Special Day

I wanted to say a few words about just how special this Sunday 25th of May was. I had planned to write a little statement after the gig and put it out on social media on Monday but I just couldn’t find the words. I have left it a few days and now feel that rather than a short generic statement like ‘thanks everyone for coming and making it special blah blah’ I would write a small review of the day’s events.

This year Dot2Dot looked set to be bigger and better than ever before, with more venues involved especially through Hockley. I also had the pleasure and honour of organising the acts myself this year which was a lot easier than I originally had thought it would be thanks to the loyalty and effort that all the bands put in. Out of the 9 bands we had on over the day 3 of them were suggested to us by the DHP team. The first of which who went by the name of ‘Life’ were impossible to find online before the event. Read more

Jamcafé stage @ Dot2Dot 2014

We are very happy to announce that we are an official stage at Dot2Dot festival this year. Dot2Dot was last years winner of ‘Best Metropolitan Festival’ at the UK festival awards and will probably win even more awards this year as it is the biggest line up they have ever had. Quite possibly thanks to the coming on board of 5 Hockley venues: Jamcafé, Broadway, The Corner, Brew Dog and Suede Bar.

Hockley will be alive this Sunday and we won’t be selfish and expect you to spend the whole day with us, it will be more enjoyable to check out the lineups and plan your day around who you want to see. Good news being most of the Hockley venues are free to enter, you don’t need a wristband to get in. Jamcafé is a free entry venue and we have a fantastic lineup which we have had the pleasure to put together ourselves with some of the best acts that have played Jam over the last year and a few welcome additions by dhp of national acts that we are also very excited to hear.

Looking Forward

We put on gigs almost every night we are open now at Jamcafé, with ourselves and promoters booking a whole load of fantastic bands and artists from all over the UK and sometimes overseas. It is hard for you as a customer to know which gigs to come to and of course we can’t expect you to come out to see us every night of the week, although some of you do. In order to help you we promise from here on to keep the new website up to date with the events page showing you what is coming up so you can do your research and decide who to come and see. On top of that we are happy to share our insight and let you know which gigs we are most excited about. Forced to pick only three gigs that are booked in here are our choices… Read more
