Previously announced for the huge multi-venue festival were the likes of Miles Kane, Easy Life, The Blinders, Sophie and the Giants (pictured) and Ten Tonnes alongside The Big Moon and Sports Team, making their return to the event.

Now organisers have announced a further 36 acts including Yonaka, making a welcome return to Manchester, The Sherlocks and local favourites Larkins.



Neighbourhood also features the hottest up-and-coming bands, including Sports Team, led by their enigmatic singer Alex Rice, Irish indie quartet Inhaler, 16 year-old wonderkid Alfie Templeman and alternative pop outfit Working Men’s Club, who’ve recently sold-out a 3-date residency at Manchester’s YES.

This year’s line-up is once again packed with local talent, with Julia Bardo, Phoebe Green, LOAstate, Sauce, Blanketman and Saytr Play preparing to tear the house down.
