One of Manchester’s biggest ever wristband-only all-dayers, Neighbourhood, is growing larger as the booking confirmations roll in.

Welcomed to Manchester are the North East indie rock trio Little Comets, Rationale’s atmospheric production, Blackpool’s folk-pop export Rae Morris and Brighton post-hardcorists Black Peaks. There are over 100 acts promised across the full multi-venue event, with  Tall Ships, Grace, Alice Jemima, Area 52, Black Foxxes, Superfood and Declan McKenna also lined up to perform.

The burgeoning catalogue of local acts has identified Lake Komo, The Hyena Kill and Man Made for slots, all hoping to leapfrog from this larger platform to greater recognition.

The inaugural event takes place on Saturday 8 October, 2016 – surely a day to set aside on your calendar for a yomp across the Oxford Street and Whitworth Street area of Manchester.

With the likes of Twin Atlantic, Kate Nash and Circa Waves already on board and many more announcement still to follow, there’s a high level of anticipation in the Neighbourhood.


Neighbourhood Festival takes place on Saturday 8 October, 2016, across several venues, including Albert Hall, Dog Bowl, The Ritz, Sound Control and Gorilla.
