A festival with a difference: What we learned at Deershed 2017

At Neighbourhood Festival’s inception last year, the likes of Blossoms, Circa Waves, White Lies, The Sherlocks and many others played to packed audiences, earning plaudits and ensuring that a follow-up festival in 2017 was almost a certainty.

Most of the venues from 2016 will be in use this year, including the magnificent Albert Hall, the Grade II listed O2 Ritz, Gorilla and the Deaf Institute. In total, 11 venues will play host to over 100 bands.


  • Neighbourhood Festival 2017 takes place around Manchester City Centre on October 7.
