The award-winning RADAR Festival returns, with the first wave of bands announced for the 2024 edition.
Held at Manchester's O2 Victoria Warehouse on 26-28th July, RADAR Festival 2024 will include Swedish fusion sensations Dirty Loops, Australian progressive guitar maestro Plini, rap rock hard-hitters Oxymorrons, UK metal favourites Conjurer, modern metalcore heavyweights Caskets, Danish progressive metal troupe VOLA and many more.
In Dirty Loops, Plini, and VOLA, RADAR welcome three massive alumni from previous editions. In addition, Heart of a Coward return from headlining Stage Two in 2023 for a well-deserved main stage appearance, and Caskets and Conjurer have been revealed as Stage Two headliners.
This special early announcement coincides with RADAR returning to their early bird pricing for a limited time. All tickets will be available to fans on RADAR's mailing list as a thank you for being such an integral part of the engaged community and go live on Saturday 28th October at 9am.
Festival co-organiser Catherine Jackson-Smith comments:
"I'm not sure I can hide my delight at Dirty Loops returning to RADAR Festival. Musically, when we booked them in 2022, it was a defining moment for RADAR Festival, signalling that we were prepared to push boundaries. I won't ever deny they are one of my favourite bands so I can't wait to see them in our stunning new venue for an even bigger party!
"It's never easy is it?! We've been booking bands right up to the last moment of this announcement, some didn't make it and we'll be following up with more bands soon! I know people will be blown away with what we've booked, it's worth waiting for!"
Full list of bands announced today:
Dirty Loops, Plini, VOLA, Heart of a Coward, Caskets, Conjurer, Oxymorrons, Ithaca, Graphic Nature,
