More artists join Neighbourhood Weekender 2020 line-up

The festival returns to Warrington in May 2020.

Organisers of Neighbourhood Weekender have unveiled their second wave of artists for 2020’s event.

Following a successful outing in Warrington last summer, Neighbourhood Weekender will return to Victoria Park on 23 – 24 May 2020.

The new artists join Ian Brown and Catfish and the Bottlemen who will take on headline duties on Saturday and Sunday respectively, alongside the likes of Sam Fender, The Wombats, Miles Kane and Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott on the bill.

Leading the latest announcement is the news that Sydney rockers Gang Of Youths are set to appear on the Saturday of the festival.

Also confirmed to perform are Glasgow indie-makers The Snuts, Liverpudlian up-and-comer Zuzu, Charli XCX proteges Nasty Cherry and Manchester rockers The Hara.

The latest line-up announcement is completed with the arrivals of Cassia, Dylan John Thomas, Lona, Talk Show and Warrington’s own The K’s.

Ian Brown arrives at to headline the Neighbourhood Weekender with his first major solo headline performance in almost a decade, and four years since The Stone Roses played four nights at Manchester’s vast Etihad Stadium. The performance follows the release of his self-produced Ripples album last year.

Catfish and the Bottlemen headline on Sunday, following a huge sold out arena tour across the UK and the release of their latest album The Balance.

Sam Fender, who released his Hypersonic Missiles debut in September 2019, performs on Saturday, with The Wombats and The Beautiful South’s Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott set to perform on the Sunday.

The list of artists performing also includes Pale Waves, Tom Walker, and Ticketmaster New For 2020 picks Inhaler.

Launching in 2018, Neighbourhood Weekender began with headline performances by Everything Everything and Sundara Karma, immediately establishing itself as the city’s biggest metropolitan festival.

Last year saw headline performances by George Ezra and Richard Ashcroft, as well as welcoming the likes of Primal Scream, The Vaccines, You Me At Six and Nothing But Thieves.

With bands across three stages ranging from huge names to emerging talent, the festival has fast become a staple at the start of the season.
