California-based band The Neighbourhood has been added to the lineup for Tampa’s inaugural Coastline Festival, happening Nov. 9 at the MidFlorida Amphitheatre.
The announcement came a day after the band opened for Imagine Dragons in front of a crowd of thousands at the USF Sun Dome.
Tribune correspondent Rick Bennett had this to say about The Neighbourhood in his review of the concert:
“If this were the ‘90s, their soulful and reggae-influenced alternapop would make them the next big thing. However, in today’s fragmented music scene, they will never be huge unless they smooth their edges to become the next Maroon 5, which would be a shame because they are something special.”
The Neighbourhood was already in the lineup for the festival’s West Palm Beach stop on Nov. 10.
They join Passion Pit, Matt & Kim, Two Door Cinema Club, Fitz & the Tantrums, The Joy Formidable and other indie-minded acts set to play the day-long “musiculinary” festival that includes food trucks, a craft beer garden and an art show.
