Alongside Igorrr, announced today are Australia’s Thornhill for a UK festival exclusive performance, US mathcore legends Car Bomb, progressive luminaries Caligula’s Horse and AA Williams, and hotly-tipped homegrown talent in the forms of Heriot, Dream State, Lake Malice, and Pupil Slicer.
Full list of bands announced today:
Igorrr (Saturday headliner)
Thornhill (UK Festival Exclusive)
Shattered Skies (Farewell Show)
Day splits have also been published, presenting Monuments (Friday), Heart of a Coward (Saturday) and Loathe (Sunday) as Stage Two headliners.
Still to be announced are the festival masterclasses and one final jaw-dropping act to support Igorrr on Saturday. Stay tuned for more.

“RADAR Festival is fully booked and we can let you in on a little secret: we have confirmed our first 2024 headliner, and are already working on the other two. More news on all that soon…

RADAR 2023 will be held 28-30th July at Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse – a 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 be 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 has already positioned themselves as a champion of forward-thinking guitar-led progressive music. No genre boundaries, welcome to all, RADAR Festival was launched in 2019 to acclaim, with performances from Animals As Leaders, Agent Fresco, 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.
