Nina Nesbitt 21/11/2017

Venue; Manchester Sound Control
Status; Limited ticket availability
Support Act; Goody Grace

Teenage girls in 2013 were either obsessed with One Direction, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus (etc), for me it was Nina Nesbitt. The first time I saw Nina irl, was at her signing tour after the release of her debut album Peroxide, so many people turned up, it was absolutely insane (after queuing for around four hours I met her and got the album signed).

The second was at her Manchester show at the Methodist hall, it was honestly one of the most beautiful nights of my life, atmosphere wise - it's amazing, never have I experienced crowd synchronicity like I have at a Nina concert - it was like we were one big family.

Wolf Alice 09/11/17

Venue; O2 Apollo Manchester
Capacity; 3,500
Status; Limited ticket availability (Standing sold out)
Support Acts; Superfood & Sunflower Bean

Redondo dos!

Wolf Alice have always been that band for me - that band that I thought I'd never get to see live, it'd be too surreal - like I'd be in denial that I was there? To be honest, I'd always worried about seeing them live, I'd hyped it up so much in my head, and I adore their music, and I was low-key anxious that they wouldn't be as good in real life, and that the magic would be gone in a split second - but this wasn't the case.

Feet and Declan Mckenna 23/10/17

Venue; Manchester O2 Ritz (upgraded from Manchester Academy)
Capacity; 1,500
Status; Sold out!!!

Round two! Here we go..

After a phenomenal performance from both parties at Neighbourhood Festival, there was no way I'd pass up the opportunity to experience it again, but it a bigger better venue, (they could've filled Gorilla five times over). Declan Mckenna is the newest sensation in the indie world, after his political single 'Brazil' hit the radio, he absolutely shot into fame, he's become something of a teenage icon, and has captured the hearts of thousands of fans from around the globe.

Cleagreen 14/10/17

Venue; Rebellion Rock Bar, Manchester
Status; Sold-Out

Cleargreen are an up-and-coming four-piece indie rock band from Manchester who first shot onto the radar with their hit single 'Burnsey'. With vocals and guitar from Ali Staley, Jack Blair on lead guitar, Tyrone Heeley with drums, and Liam McIver on bass - supported by Sollo and Sauce - and a sold-out headline gig, these guys never fail to disappoint. Cleargreen cast a wide net and caught a wide variety of fans, of all age groups, all of whom joined together to sing along to the guy's catchy lyrics.

Neighbourhood Festival 2017

Me n the gals
Click here to see the full line up and set times
Neighbourhood Festival 2016 was absolutely insane (I still have the wristband on - oops) - and not all the good kind. It was infuriatingly busy and I couldn't get in to see all the bands that I wanted to (The Pigeon Detectives and Liam Fray's acoustic set), my only hope was that this year would be a little more organised, and that I'd get to see everyone that I wanted to.

The bands I set out to see were;

Oddity Road
No Hot Ashes
Black Honey
The Big Moon
Declan Mckenna
