size?sessions Festival - First wave of acts announced

Following the huge success of last year’s festival, street-fashion and footwear retailer size? are pleased to announce that they will be bringing the size?sessions Festival back with some of the UK’s top talent. Returning for its second year, the festival is set to take place in the incredible O2 Victoria Warehouse in Manchester on Saturday 4th November - a city renowned for its music and fashion culture.

Returning bigger and better than before, 2022 saw the likes of AJ Tracey, Nines, and Knucks perform across three stages. And now, for 2023, size? are pleased to unveil their first wave of acts: Headie One, Digga D, Strandz, Izzy Bossy and BXKS.

British rap sensation Headie One will be headlining the main stage. Headie One is the first artist to emerge from the Drill scene with a UK Official Chart top #10 single, making UK chart history. One of the figureheads of the burgeoning scene, he released his debut album Edna in 2020, rocketing straight to No.1 in the UK albums chart. He has also collaborated with some of the UK — and world’s — most prolific rappers including Drake, Dave, Skepta, Aitch, AJ Tracey and Section Boyz, cementing himself as one of Britain’s leading rappers and most formidable talents.


Joining the headline spot, rap and drill artist Digga D will also take the main stage. The ‘Bringing it Back’ singer will perform a live set for music fans. 2019 marked the release of Digga D’s debut mixtape ‘Double Tap Diaries’ which charted #11, making it the highest charting debut for a UK solo drill artist. With over 300 million global streams under his belt, Digga D is rapidly becoming a household name within the UK music scene.

“Us Against The World” rap artist STRANDZ joins the line-up, alongside Izzy Bossy and BXKS who will perform huge sets at the event, rounding off a memorable day in Trafford.

Not only are size? returning with unbeatable talent but are back with exclusive experiences from your favourite streetwear brands. Street-fashion brand Homegrown will provide an interactive room for attendees to breakaway from the music and capture imagery at the event. Leading outdoor brand The North Face is back with their VIP Lounge with Cuban Rum maker, Havana Club. VIP ticket holders can break away from the music and recharge with two free cocktails while securing the best view in the venue - VIP ticket holders have full access to The North Face’s VIP balcony.
