Neighbourhood Weekender 2020

When Neighbourhood Weekender has launched two years ago as a big boy version of Neighbourhood Festival, it turned into one of the surprise highlights of our Summer. Last year a bigger group of us went on a (short) road trip to enjoy it and as I type we’re already seeing who wants to buy tickets and jump in on the ride with us for 2020. With, arguably, the best line up ever – I’d ask how they manage to keep doing it but being put on by one of the biggest promoters in the UK gives them an edge.
They also give a great leg up to some of the newer bands to the festival circuit and we’re loving seeing those bands move up the lineup.

It’s not just the line up that excites and entices us back it’s the general atmosphere; so far our experience has been friendly, fun and upbeat. We’ve even got ourselves a little food crush while there last year! It’s true… last year we discovered the Doughnut Pod; a tiny home-baked vegan doughnut vendor…. and we’ve stalked them for more of the luscious goodies ever since.


Want to win a pair of weekend tickets? Yes? What’s the catch? No catch really… just follow us on Twitter share the link to this post and tag us and let us know who you’re most looking forward to seeing! We’ll pick a winner at random on 31st March!


Nasty Cherry

I’ll hold my hands up and admit that I hadn’t heard of Nasty Cherry before the poster for Neighbourhood was released.  Two-thirds of the way through a song on Spotify and I was well excited for May.  I cannot wait to see if their live performance matches the high-quality songs.

Lauran Hibbard

We love Lauran Hibbard here at Popped Music.  Her pop bops regularly cause excitement in our group chats.  This is going to be a momentous summer for the girl from Isle of Wight, so you’re going to have to get involved.  You can dance with us too.

Listen to Bang Bang Bang here:


Some bands are made for festivals, and Cassia are one of those.  With the constant summertime vibes of their bops, you’re going to dance whether you want to or not.  The fact they’re from nearby Macclesfield will give an extra boost to what is a sure-fire winner.

Red Rum Club

After playing practically every festival known to man in 2019, Red Rum Club are continuing to bring the mariachi rock n roll vibes to any field that has the need to dance around.  Treat yourself to half an hour in their company as it could be the best thirty minutes of your summer.
