Fresh from their incredible London show, the unstoppable Sleep Token have been announced as one of RADAR Festival 2023’s headliners.

The band will top the bill on the Friday night of the Manchester prog bash, which takes places at the O2 Victoria Warehouse from July 28 – 30.

They’ll be joined on the line-up by The Callous Daoboys making their first-ever UK appearance, plus fellow new announcements Volumes, Monuments, God Is An Astronaut, Ten56., Wheel, I Built The Sky, Profiler, Exploring Birdsong, Forager, Where Oceans Burn and Dead Speaker. The likes of Periphery and Loathe were previously announced to play – see the full line-up below.

“This summer is going to be so special: we have brought together inspiring bands and outstanding musicians together in the vibrant city that we now call home, Manchester,” says co-organiser Ash Cook. “The last few weeks of winning Best New Festival, a venue move, and confirming this next wave of acts has left me proud and excited to be working with our team to produce another outstanding event.

“When I like a band, I really get sucked into all elements of their music. It’s been a pleasure getting to do that with some fantastic rising stars among our line-up, as well as reacquainting myself with memorable moments from incredible albums from the more established acts that we’re bringing over.

“Periphery and Volumes are both favourites, and Sleep Token blew me away with their show last week. We're excited to see what you all think – and I can’t wait!”

Weekend and day tickets are available now.
