Introducing the Dork Hype List Tour 2023, headlined by Priestgate

We're hitting the road for the first ever Hype List tour next February.

You know us, Dear Reader. We live and breathe new music. You also know that our annual Hype List – a who’s who of the acts we’re very excited about for the year ahead – is coming up ‘imminently’. This year, we’re pushing it further than ever before though, kicking off today with the announcement of the Dork Hype List Tour 2023 – headlined by one of our favourite new bands right now – Priestgate!

The first act we’re revealing from 2023’s edition of the Hype List, ever since their first track dropped, we’ve been hooked. With their mind-blowing EP ‘Eyes Closed For The Winter’, they’ve seized the summer proving themselves as one of the best new live bands on the planet. Latest single ‘Some Things Never Change’ levels it up even further. Trust us, catching Priestgate live while they’re still playing intimate shows is the kind of opportunity that won’t be on offer too much longer.

Kicking off in Glasgow on 3rd February, we’ll be calling into Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, London, Brighton, Birmingham and Nottingham. With a whole bunch of special guests still to be announced across the tour, we advise you book your tickets ASAP so you can proudly proclaim ‘I saw Priestgate in a well tiny venue before things got proper massive’.

Tickets for the Dork Hype List Tour 2023 are on-sale from 10am tomorrow (Friday 28th October). You can find links for each date below. The rest of this year’s Hype List will be revealed in the next issue of Dork, out on Friday 18th November.
