The 2nd edition of indoor RADAR Festival, which features 'forward-thinking guitar-led music' and takes place Guildford, Surrey has been forced to postponed for a second time, and will no longer take place on the rescheduled dates of Friday 16th and Saturday 17th October 2020.

To support the festival, a crowdfunder has been launched, which will see 20% of proceeds raised being donated to RADAR's crew. Visit the crowdfunder here: https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/rdrfestival
RADAR FESTIVAL organisers comment: "I’m not sure it will come as a huge surprise that in light of the current global situation we are postponing RADAR Festival 2020, but we held on as long as we could, whilst constantly evaluating the ever evolving situation. The UK Government is pushing steadily to re-open the country, but we just did not feel it was safe to put our event on. Gigs should be packed, in sweaty rooms, people jumping up and down losing their minds to their favourite bands and as it stands we would probably have to seriously reduce our capacity and re-book without any international acts. However, looking forward with positivity to 2021, we have launched a crowdfunder - where we will be giving 20% of funds raised to our 2019 crew - with many great rewards (and some to be added!) and we have managed to retain 95% of our lineup with two to be added at a later date. 2020 sucks, but let’s make 2021 a banger!"
Tickets are on sale, priced at £64.99 for both days.
