We know it's only been gone for a year but oh how we've missed you, NBHD.

After a year’s hiatus, Neighbourhood Festival is officially returning to Manchester later this year and the first wave of the 2024 lineup is already out.

You’re in for a treat, you lot.

The city centre spin-off of Warrington’s popular Neighbourhood Weekender has become one of the most popular music festivals in the North and was sorely missed when they took a break last year, but luckily is back with a bang this fall.

Rocking up to a number of beloved Manchester music venues including the Ritz, Gorilla and Albert Hall, the all-dayer is set to be a stormer.

As you can see, there are some seriously good names on the list too, including lots of local talent like Anthony Szmierek, Seb Lowe, Balancing Act, Corella and Manc headliners, Pale Waves.


There are also lots of other acts from in and around the North West like Liverpool stars Red Rum Club, Courting and The Mysterines, as well as artists who’ve gone big on TikTok such as indie pop group Daydreamers and Bradley Simpson of The Vamps.

Other names we’ve picked out include Birmingham boys, Overpass, Brighton’s Chappaqua Wrestling and Portsmouth four-piece, Crystal Tides.


Honestly, there are so many ones to watch on the 2024 Neighbourhood Festival lineup and this is only the first wave of artists, we honestly can’t wait.

Manchester’s biggest city centre festival has welcomed all manner of names that have gone on to do massive things in the past, including the likes of Sam Fender, Declan McKenna and The Last Dinner Party; Yungblud, local lads The Lathums and many more.

With Neighbourhood Weekender also having been postponed until 2025 as the organisers looked to ‘take a break’ and fine-tune the event, seeing the city centre day festival back in the interim is music to our ears – literally.


NBHD returns to Manchester city centre on 5 October and tickets go on sale at 10am this Friday, 24 May at 9am. You can grab yours HERE.

See you there!
