SJM announces festival in the North West

Neibourhood WeekenderSJM Concerts has announced a brand new outdoor festival. Launching as Neighbourhood Weekender, the two-day event will take place at Victoria Park, Warrington, over 26-27 May 2018.

Promoters Luke Temple and Jack Dowling of SJM Concerts, commented: “Neighbourhood weekender is already shaping up to have a great line up. Victoria Park is the perfect space to host our new festival. We can’t wait to come back for what is going to be an amazing weekend of live music across three stages along with a hub of local food and drinks on offer.”

Warrington’s Victoria Park, in Cheshire, has played host to high profile events including the very first V Festival in August 1996 and Radiohead in 2000. With excellent travel links, the site is easily accessible from all major towns and cities across the North West.

The first line-up announcement is scheduled for Monday 13 November, with the promise of “an incredible weekend of live music featuring some of the biggest bands and hottest new artists.”

The organiser has said Neighbourhood Weekender would be a 25,000 capacity event, daily.

SJM alongside Metropolis Music, MCD Productions and Live Nation, are driving forces behind V Festival, which is set to rebrand next year after Virgin stepped down as headline sponsor after 22 years.
