Comments Off on RADAR Festival 2024 announces second headliner: TesseracT, plus seven more

The award-winning, genre-busting RADAR Festival is proud to unveil its Saturday headliner for the 2024 edition.

Held at Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse on 26-28th July, RADAR Festival 2024 will be headlined by UK prog-metal titans TesseracT on Saturday night, for a unique full immersion set – not to be missed. They join the previously-announced Friday headliner, synth royalty, The Midnight.

Also confirmed for RADAR 2024 are cinematic rock quartet Earthside, US post-hardcore legends The Fall Of Troy, metallic hardcore heavyweights thrown, proggers Hail The Sun, and new supergroup Vower (featuring members of ToskaBlack Peaks, and Palm Reader), among others.

And if that’s not enough, there are still after-parties and masterclasses, plus at least four more incredible bands to be announced for RADAR 2024, including Sunday’s headliner – shaping up to be the new music event in the UK this year.

And, demonstrating their commitment to new bands, RADAR have also announced that they will be the first venue to donate a portion of ticket sales proceeds to Music Venue Trust, in order to support grassroots music venues.

Festival co-organiser Catherine Jackson-Smith comments:

“Our second headliners are pioneers of the modern prog scene, TesseracT.  This announcement is a little closer to home for me personally, as I met the band in 2010 when they first started playing at my own venue, The Lounge Bar in Alton. They instantly stood out as exceptional artists and through that friendship, I’ve stood at the sides watching the stage sizes and fans increase steadily since, looking forward to the day returning when we can collaborate on a show again. Together, we’ve been working on an immersive experience for RADAR, this will be something special and not to be missed! 

“The rest of our line-up additions showcase the health of this modern progressive scene, and our commitment to platforming new bands such as Vower (built from ToskaBlack Peaks and Palm Reader!), and introducing a wide variety of music, from pop synths in the form of Kyros right through to post-hardcore from The Fall of Troy.”

RADAR – the UK’s most exciting new progressive music festival – moved to Manchester for its 2023 edition, the third iteration of the festival.

RADAR Festival 2023 was a smash success, with Friday headliners Sleep Token joining Periphery (Sunday) and Igorrr (Saturday) among a host of the best from the UK progressive underground and globally. RADAR pride themselves on providing a first home for the best international artists – previous years have seen Dirty Loops (2022) and The Callous Daoboys (2023) first UK shows. 

RADAR capped their intensely impressive 2022 by winning the Best New Festival Award at the UK Festival Awards on 6th December in Manchester, and were shortlisted for Best Small Festival and Best Metropolitan Festival at 2023’s UK Festival Awards.

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 FrescoRolo Tomassi, among others. Following the COVID hiatus, RADARFestival 2022 expanded to three days with triumphant appearances from LeprousHakenDirty LoopsPliniConjurerSoen and more.

RADAR Festival is all about pushing boundaries – this year introducing fresh genres to the lineup and stages – and this is just the beginning.
