Preview: Neighbourhood Weekender 2019
Neighbourhood Weekender returns to Warrington in 2019 after its triumphant 2018 debut with a line up that demonstrates its worth as a festival coming to the forefront of the wish list of everyone’s summer.
With weekend tickets coming to just above £100, with a line up as stellar as it is, the expansion of the yearly, Manchester based festival has proven itself as a much more affordable alternative to many of the major festivals, and being at the start of the festival season, is a perfect way to kick the summer off.
Boasting a line up of headliners George Ezra, Richard Ashcroft, Primal Scream and the Vaccines, Neighbourhood promises to be a crowd pleaser just off the back of that, but is also a great opportunity to catch some smaller but no less excellent artists over the two days.
Tickets are on sale now, for more information see: www.nbhdweekender.com
The top picks:
While some of Nash’s newer work will not be as familiar as the 2007 indie classic Foundations, the London born artist never fails to put on a show. After a brisk with acting in the acclaimed Netflix original series Glow, Nash is back on the festival circuit this year with an album load of new content. As she takes the stage in May, the audience can look forward to a host of new, more punky, Hole inspired songs, ‘girl power’ at its core. Nash and her band are definitely not one to be missed.
This alt-pop duo have sprung to prominence in the past two years. Having returned from SXSW, a showcase for the best of the best that the alternative scene has to offer right now, this lies as proof of the potential these boys have. With tunes on offer like Backstreet and All Yours, these two offer an electronic twist on the indie genre, and will be a pleasure to watch as they tackle festival season.
No Hot Ashes
This high energy Manchester four piece return for the Weekender after an epic performance at the day festival in October, where they had no trouble in packing out the Manchester Ritz. These boys were made for festival crowds, with tunes you find yourself dancing away to, regardless of whether you know them or not. After a 2018 jam packed with festival dates, No Hot Ashes know what they are doing, and enter the 2019 scene with the reputation of a band definitely worth catching.
