SUPPORTING RADAR FESTIVAL:
Last year, in what you could call simpler times, we launched RADAR Festival with a fantastic lineup and a philosophy about doing things the right way for customers, artists, crew and all involved.
We were blown away with year one and immediately announced part one of the 2020 line up, including headliners Dirty Loops, after the conclusion of the 2019 event. We love the constant positive vibes that accompany every announcement and no one could have predicted what would happen this year.
WHY ARE WE CROWDFUNDING?
RADAR Festival an independent festival with no corporate backing, that was started by three friends, with kind support from many more in the industry and most importantly the customers who attended 2019 and intended to attend 2020.
Being the new festival on the scene, we are lucky to have lower costs than some other festivals, but equally that presents its own problems. We have a strong business plan, which mapped out the first five years but COVID-19 has thrown a metaphorical spanner in the works.
Due to the postponement to 2021, we have incurred costs that will come out of the 2021 budget and for us to continue to grow and improve RADAR Festival, we need to keep the books in a healthier position. We want RADAR Festival 2021, 2022, 2023 and beyond to continue to get bigger, better and we need you to help us.
Importantly, we also have a wonderful supporting team at RADAR Festival, who helped us get off the ground. The live music sector has been one of the hardest hit and will probably be the last back up on its feet, so we will be giving 20% of the Crowdfunder to our 2019 crew.
The ethos behind RADAR is centred around bringing people together to watch their favourite bands whilst discovering the new acts that they will fall in love with. We're passionate about finding those smaller artists that need a platform to unleash their material on the world and have that step-up.
We have big plans for the future of RADAR Festival.
Ash, Catherine and Joe
We're so proud of the amazing and varied bands we've pulled together for 2021. Masters of the scene Haken headline on Friday, and where else can you watch Sleep Token warm up the stage for Dirty Loops? RADAR, that's where.

Our lovely festival artist, Paco, has done us another lovely design. This time we listened to everyone and did a well requested black tee, with pink print.

Were you at RADAR 2019 and missed out on some merch? Support us with getting a 2019 tee with last year's line up.

VIP REWARD AND STICKER:
If you go for the VIP rewards, you'll get a personalised RADAR VIP Lanyard for the festival (or for life, if you go for that one) to wear with pride.
Every physical reward claimed will get a RADAR Festival Supporter sticker, so you can add to that growing collection on your laptop.
We arrived in 2019 with a bang, with Animals as Leaders and Monuments headlining. Sadly 2020 was postponed to October at the start of the COVID19 crisis and then with this crowdfunding announcement, moved to 2021.
