Neighbourhood Festival

The Murder Capital, Lovejoy, The Dinner Party and more bring the mayhem to Neighbourhood Festival

If there’s one question that Manchester’s Neighbourhood Festival grabs with both hands and makes sure you get an answer for, it’s ‘what’s next?’. A living, breathing jukebox of new music playlists, Dork favourites and standout discoveries alike – Neighbourhood 2022 embraces every direction, brought together for a melting pot of new music goodness. It’s the sort of festival that plays perfectly for those ‘I was there’ moments. Opening up not only the Dork Stage at Gorilla but basically the festival itself, Lovejoy are phenomenon the world needs to catch onto fast. Led by frontman Wilbur Soot, what first exploded with a feverish online fanbase is now front and centre live – today’s set notably their first outside of Brighton. Snaking queues across the city prove it, and from the moment they kick off a frenzied set – it’s nothing short of emphatic. Drowned-out singalongs, pogoing masses and arena-sized screams...
