Neighbourhood Weekender has confirmed its return for 2021 with newly rescheduled dates. The festival, which is usually held in May at Warrington's Victoria Park, will now take place from 3-5 September this year.
Gerry Cinnamon will headline the Friday night of the festival, while James will top the bill on the second night, replacing Ian Brown as Saturday night headliner. The North West's biggest indie festival will then be rounded off by Welsh rockers Catfish And The Bottlemen.
