In addition, sadly two acts are no longer able to perform at RADAR 2023. ten56. will be moving from Stage Two in place of Car Bomb, whoĀ are no longer able to make it over to Europe this summer. The festival also welcomes alternative metalcore band ResolveĀ from France to take their slot on Stage Two. Further to that, the festival will bring London tech-metallers, and RADAR alumni, Harbinger, who have stepped up as Heriot have had to withdraw from the festival due to a scheduling conflict.

RADARĀ – the UK’s most exciting new progressive music festival – recently completed its 2023 line-up with the inclusion of synthwave heavyweight Perturbator, supporting Igorrr on the Saturday.

Perturbator joins a host of impressive names at RADAR 2023, includingĀ Friday headliners Sleep Token and Sunday headliners Periphery, Volumes, Haken, Loathe, Heart of a Coward, Dream State, The Callous Daoboys, and many many more.

RADAR 2023 will be held 28-30th July at Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse – aĀ stunning new venue and one which promises to provide a truly incredible experience.

Following the sell-out success of RADAR 2022, the festival’s second ever edition (featuring Leprous, Haken, Dirty Loops‘ debut UK performance and many more), RADAR 2023 will beĀ moving from Guildford’s Corner House to Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse, and will boast an internationally acclaimed 42-band bill.

RADAR capped their intensely impressive 2022 by winning the Best New Festival Award and the UK Festival Awards on 6th December in Manchester.

With their mixture of international talent and confirmed homegrown success, RADAR Festival hasĀ already positioned themselves as a championĀ of forward-thinking guitar-led progressive music. No genre boundaries, welcome to all, RADAR Festival was launched in 2019 to acclaim, with performances fromĀ Animals As Leaders,Ā Agent Fresco,Ā Rolo Tomassi, among others. Following the COVID hiatus, RADAR Festival 2022 expanded to three days with triumphant appearances from Leprous, Haken, Dirty Loops, Plini, Conjurer, Soen and more.
