Blossoms to headline inaugural Neighbourhood Festival in Manchester

The new event will take place over one day across several venues in the city

Blossoms will be among the headliners at the inaugural Neighbourhood Festival in Manchester next month.

Taking place on Saturday October 8, the new event will take up residence at at least 10 venues in the south side of the city, including The Albert Hall, The O2 Ritz and The Deaf Institute. Attendees of the festival will be able to hop between venues on the same wristband throughout the day.

Leading the bill are the Stockport five-piece, who will have the task of being one of two daytime headliners, a duty they will share with White Lies. With over 100 acts playing across the day, Neighbourhood Festival has taken the option of having two sets of headliners, with Circa Waves and Twin Atlantic taking the helm as the headliners of the evening programme.


Elsewhere, the festival will see sets from the established likes of Fenech Soler, The Pigeon Detectives and Rae Morris, as well as Grace, Lonely The Brave and Rationale.

New music is also a keen focus of the festival, with an emphasis on the local Manchester scene. Among the home-grown acts appearing at Neighbourhood are Dantevilles, Face, and No Hot Ashes, while the hotly-tipped Cabbage will also be making an appearance.

General sale tickets are on sale now, priced at £30.
