Festival Preview | Neighbourhood Weekender @ Victoria Park, Warrington

Warrington hosts an eclectic mix of the UK’s biggest talents at this year’s Neighbourhood Weekender.

In the final weekend May 2023, Warrington will see some of the biggest names in the UK music scene come together across three stages over two days. Acts are split among three stages: The Main Stage, The Big Top, and the Viola Beach stage. The latter was named after the late English band Viola Beach. Neighbourhood Weekender is the perfect opportunity to see a huge collection of acts from various genres. This could include going to watch your current favourite band, or even use it as a a chance to discover someone new! There is sure to be a band or artist for everyone at Neighbourhood Weekender with acts from genres including pop, indie, and post-punk.

Saturday 27th May

Nostalgia really sets the mood for Saturday at Neighbourhood Weekender this year, especially on the Main Stage. Paul Heaton is headlining this stage joined by a special guest. Heaton is accompanied on this stage by 90s group Ocean Colour Scene and pop group Scouting For Girls. Also playing the Main Stage is Edinburgh singer Brooke Combe who will have just finished a UK tour of her own.

The Big Top and Viola Beach stage are also filled by big names. The Wombats will headline The Big Top stage with The Goa Express headlining the Viola Beach stage. They are joined by groups and artists like Inspiral Carpets, Stone, and another Scottish band called The View.

Sunday 28th May

Sunday is equally as packed as Saturday. 2023 sees the return of 90s brit-pop group Pulp who will be headlining the Main Stage. They will come on stage after sets from other acts including Self Esteem and indie-rockers Sea Girls.

Headlining the Big Top stage is pop artist Anne-Marie who also shares the stage with Heidi Curtis, CMAT, and Gaz Coombes. Corella are headlining the Viola Beach stage with other acts like James Marriott, and another Edinburgh act, Bonnie Kemplay. Kemplay isn’t one to miss at this festival, her intricate and beautiful lyrics have gained her huge attention, she even supported The 1975 on their recent UK and Ireland tour dates!
