Manchester-based street fashion and footwear retailer size? has revealed plans to bring some huge headliners to the city as part of a new music festival that’s launching this summer.

What first began as a series of intimate in-store sessions has now grown into size?’s very-own day festival, and it’s building on the retailer’s reputation for representing a range of up-and-coming talent from multiple genres.

Taking place right here in the retailer’s hometown of Manchester, the size?sessions all-day festival will take over the O2 Victoria Warehouse this August.

Chart-topping rappers AJ Tracey, Nines, and Knucks will play headline sets.

As well as the headline names, the first wave of acts have just been announced for the show today – with further rap artists Comfy and Juice Menace, singer-songwriters MIraa May and Tamera, and Manchester’s very-own ‘sisterz of darkness’ duo The KTNA all confirmed on the bill.


Kennedy Taylor of The Electric Pancakes band, who also has a show on London’s ‘Foundation FM’, is also down to play a DJ set at the festival.

Set to take place on Saturday 20 August, the new size?sessions festival plans to unite music and streetwear fans under one roof as it brings a mixture of heavy hitters and up-and-comers to the city in a brand new format.


Festival-goers will not only be able to witness some of their favourite acts, but attendees can also socialise and document their time at the festival via the Homegrown room – a social space sponsored by the newly launched fashion brand Homegrown.

With a solid line up and a further second wave of artists set to drop soon, we don’t doubt that this is going to be a big one on the city’s event calendar this summer.
