Definitely! If you feel medically unwell, we have a medical room on-site; if you’d like someone to talk to then we have mental-health trained crew that can sit with you. If you have an experience that you want assistance with then we’d actively encourage you to come to talk to us. We are one of the festivals signed up to the Safer Spaces campaign and take the well-being of everyone at our event as a top priority.
You certainly can! We have our own merch, and every band that wants to sell at the festival will be stocked at our central merch point. We’ve waived all fees to bands playing at the event. Every penny you spend will therefore go straight to the artists. If you’d like to support us too, we have a great range of products so that you can rep RADAR when you get home! We will be releasing our merch catalogue ahead of the festival so you can pre-order.
We’re an inclusive and friendly festival, and we’d love to welcome you. We have a group set up for people to meet others, chat through the line-up and so on, and they’re always really friendly. Come and join in here: RADAR Festival Group link.
