Pulp will headline Neighbourhood Weekender as part of their ‘What we do for an encore’ live dates.
Jarvis Cocker says: “Three months ago, we asked, What exactly do you do for an encore? Well… An encore happens when the crowd makes enough noise to bring the band back to the stage. So… We are playing in the UK and Ireland in 2023. Therefore… Come along & make some noise. See you there.”
After a second consecutive UK number one album, legendary duo Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott will return to Victoria Park to close out the main stage on Saturday night. As members of The Beautiful South they topped the album charts on three occasions and, earlier this year, Paul Heaton was honoured at the prestigious Ivor Awards for his ‘Outstanding Song Collection’.
The Kooks will also perform on the main stage. Over the years, they have proven themselves as key pillars of the UK indie pop world, with their illustrious career launching with the release of their iconic debut studio album Inside In/Inside Out. The quadruple-platinum selling album boasts hits including BRIT Award nominated ‘She Moves in Her Own Way’, ‘You Don’t Love Me’ and the band’s top five single ‘Naive’.
They will be joined by indie stalwarts The Wombats, The Enemy and Ocean Colour Scene alongside festival favourites Jamie Webster, Everything Everything and The Big Moon.
Pop sensations Anne-Marie, Ella Henderson and Sugababes have also been announced, as have two of this year’s breakthrough artists, the Mercury-nominated Self Esteem and Australian dance duo Confidence Man.
A host of exciting newcomers have also been announced, with rising stars CMAT, Courting, English Teacher and Slant all taking to the stage in May.
Neighbourhood Weekender kicks off the summer with an incredible weekend of non-stop live music across three stages, alongside local concessions and festival favourites The Neighbourhood Inn, The Cornershop, The Library Silent Disco and much more.
