Live Preview: NBHD Festival Returns For 2022 With Its City Edition


Manchester’s biggest multi-venue festival, NBHD, is returning this October after its successful ‘Weekender’ version saw the likes of The Courteeners Kasabian take to the main stage in Warrington last month.

Seeing its inception in 2016 with Blossoms, Circa Waves and White Lies storming the city centre, NBHD has become famed for its electric performances and buzzing festival atmosphere. The festival has since seen the likes of Liam Fray, Peace, Jaws, The Amazons, and Miles Kane take to the stage, as well as taking then up-and-coming acts Sam Fender, The Lathums, Yungblud, Holly Humberstone, and Declan Mckenna under their wing. Having not hosted its city edition since 2020, NBHD Festival is a welcome and much-awaited return to the capital of the north.

Set to take place on October 1st, the festival boasts a line-up of over 100 live acts, with only the first wave having been announced thus far. Set to be co-headlined by Everything Everything, The Snuts, and indie favourites Sundara Karma,

NBHD will also see rising stars Lauran Hibberd, Brooke Combe and Dylan (fresh from supporting Ed Sheeran at the Etihad) join the festival in its most exciting edition to date. Labelled as THE place to be to catch the next ‘big’ thing, NBHD Festival 2022 is set to be the event of the year.

Tickets for the festival are available here.
