Neighbourhood Festival 2016 Final Wave

What To Expect From The Final Wave Of Artists at Neighbourhood Festival 2016
One of the most eagerly anticipated festival line up announcements of 2016 is finally here. Blossoms and White Lies have been added to the top of the bill, and Fenech-Soler and The Pigeon Detectives also star in the already impressive line-up. As well as some of indie music’s most current stars, the Neighbourhood Festival line-up also boasts some of the country’s most impressive rising talents. Here we look at the new artists added to the line-up to give you a head’s up on what not to miss at #NBHD16. 
Stockport’s finest flower since Georgie Best graced the fields at Edgeley Park, Blossoms are the last headliners to be announced at Neighbourhood Festival. After the release of their debut self-titled album which sat pretty at number 1 for 2 weeks, Blossoms have been catapulted into the UK’s limelight. Their announcement has definitely created a buzz around Manchester and their set will definitely be one not to miss.
White Lies
Ever since the release of their debut album ‘To Lose My Life’ in 2009, White Lies have been compared to the likes of Joy Division, The Editors and Interpol. With their post-punk sound and edgy image, their shows are always eagerly anticipated by their fans and media alike. Make sure you catch this lot at Neighbourhood this year.
Indie, pop, dance, alternative, Fenech-Soler have been described as them all. Combining the swagger of an indie rock band with big dance melodies, Fenech-Soler promise to deliver a knock-out set at Neighbourhood 2016.
The Pigeon Detectives
The Pigeon Detectives are back! Their indie anthems released nearly a decade ago have proven to be timeless classics as their fans continue to belt out the choruses to tunes like ‘Take Her Back’ and ‘This Is An Emergency’. The lads from Leeds will certainly add a whole lot of rowdiness to Neighbourhood Festival this year. 
Manchester’s very own Dantevilles make the line-up for the first ever Neighbourhood Festival. Their jangle pop guitar sounds and tight drum rhythms make their audiences move and dance. They have created a buzz around Manchester since they supported Blossoms at their debut launch night in Stockport Plaza back at in early August and will showcase their efforts at Nieghbourhood Festival in October. 
Liam McClair
Neighbourhood Festival will be presenting some of Manchester’s finest new artists including singer-songwriter Liam McClair. Reigning from the same school as The 1975 and The Doves, Liam certainly wouldn’t look out of place amongst names such as Matt Healy and Jimi Goodwi
n. Preparing for a huge gig at the O2 Ritz in September, Liam McClair will then focus on his spot at Neighbourhood Festival 2016. 
Lao Ra
Reigning from Columbia, dance singer Lao Ra will certainly bring the good looks and spice to Neighbourhood Festival. Her latest single ‘Drum Machine’ has created an excitement amongst her fans on her social media which will definitely show at Neighbourhood this year.
