RADAR Festival 2020 – Progressive Rock & Metal | Guildford

16 October @ 1:00 pm - 18 October @ 3:00 am

After the success of our first year, RADAR Festival is back at Casino in Guildford for another TWO days of some of the world’s most loved and newest contemporary progressive rock and metal bands, playing across two stages with NO CLASHES.


In this ever changing and difficult situation, we at RADAR Festival have been fortunate that we have had time to evaluate our position with regards to our event on 31 July and 01 August 2020.

We take our obligation to keep our customers safe extremely seriously and as we have a wonderfully vibrant, international event, welcoming artists and fans from all over the world, we have internally said for a long time that our benchmarks for holding RADAR Festival on our original dates would be that large gatherings in the UK would be permitted and international travel would be available.

Sadly, with the current state of the COVID-19 crisis it is increasingly unlikely that our benchmarks will be met and with that in mind, we have taken the decision to postpone RADAR Festival.

Our new dates are Friday 16 and Saturday 17 October 2020.

We were beyond delighted with our 2020 line up and whilst it was initially an extremely hard decision to postpone, we know that it is the right decision.

We have been working behind the scenes with the agents and bands of our line up and we are delighted that the majority of the bill will move over to October, however, sadly Toska, Voyager, Palm Reader, I Built the Sky and Nick Johnston were unable to play the new dates.

To complete our line up, we are delighted to announce Sleep Token, Heart Of A Coward, Shokran, Siamese, CABAL, PURGE, Wavey, We Never Learned To Live, Forager, Sertraline Phoxjaw, Viriditas, Icarus Dive, You Win Again Gravity, Black Orchid Empire and Lost in the Riots.

We are also excited to announce that The Scratch and Pintglass will be on straight after the headliners at the after parties! Both definitely worth sticking around for!

To our existing ticket holders, we dearly hope that you will join us in October and your ticket/s are valid for the new dates. For those who cannot join us for our new dates, we will honour refunds at face value of the ticket/s purchased. Please contact See Tickets directly for more information.

The reschedule has posed several problems to our event, so we would greatly appreciate it – if you are able – to grab your ticket and some merch from our website. Everything goes to supporting the event and making it bigger and better every year! Merch is available here: 👈

Stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you to RADAR Festival, a little later than planned, for one hell of a party. We believe that you all deserve it!
