Following the huge success of last year’s festival, street-fashion and footwear retailer size? 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 4 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.
