Ian Brown and Catfish And The Bottlemen have been confirmed to headline Neighbourhood Weekender at Victoria Park, Warrington on 23rd and 24th May 2020.
This huge hometown return for Ian Brown will be his first major solo headline performance in almost a decade and also marks four years since The Stone Roses took over Manchester’s Etihad Stadium for four nights. Ian Brown released his self-produced album, ‘Ripples’ earlier this year to major acclaim, The Guardian describing it as “a beguiling, anthemic return.”
Brown is joined by energetic, arena-filling alternative rock flag bearers, Catfish and the Bottlemen, who headline Neighbourhood Weekender following a major sold-out arena tour, global festival appearances and new album The Balance.
Celebrated live artists Sam Fender, Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott, Shed Seven, Miles Kane, The Coral and Tom Walker will take to stage alongside a host of indie heavyweights, including Sundara Karma, Reverend and the Makers and Pale Waves.
Following their exceptional performances at this year’s Neighbourhood Festival in Manchester; The Sherlocks, The Magic Gang and The Big Moon are also heading to Warrington next year. Meanwhile, alt-pop favourites Sea Girls, Fickle Friends and The Orielles are raring to go in 2020 and are bounding to get you dancing at Victoria Park.
Irish rockers The Murder Capital are going to bring an intense set of hard-hitting post-punk, whilst fellow countrymen Inhaler will provide a summery helping of anthemic rock. Elsewhere, Sports Team, The Lathums and Working Men’s Club offer something different, with their varying brands of alternative rock seeing them all breakthrough in 2019. Rounded off by other exciting, local, newcomers, including Liverpudlians Red Rum Club and The Mysterines, and Mancunion Phoebe Green, Neighbourhood Weekender is once again the place to find the best new indie acts.
Neighbourhood Weekender kicks off the summer, bringing together an incredible weekend of live music across three stages, from the biggest acts to the best breaking new bands, alongside a hub of local concessions, and a unique community feel.
