AJ Tracey, Nines, and Knucks to headline new size? music festival in Manchester this summer
Size? is building on the success of its intimate in-store sessions with a new all-day festival this August.
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.
This will be followed by general sale on Friday 24 June here.
