Dates: 29th – 31st July 2016
This year is the tenth anniversary of Indietracks, a festival that started in April 2007 as a one-night event. To celebrate their decade of indiepop they have announced that Saint Etienne, The Aislers Set and The Spook School will all be playing Indietracks 2016.
But this is just the beginning. Around 50 indiepop bands from across the globe will be playing across four stages: the outdoor stage, the indoor stage, the church and on the steam trains themselves. The festival will also host a range of art and craft workshops and a selection of discos after the bands finish.
The other bands added to the bill are Shopping, Expert Alterations, Flowers, Seazoo, Po!, Chrissy Barnacle, ¡Ay Carmela!, City Yelps, Soda Fountain Rag, Charla Fantasma, Vacaciones, Songs for Walter and Prizefighter. Dozens more artists will be added to the bill soon.
The site houses a whole range of lovingly restored steam diesels and locomotives. Festival goers are able to have unlimited rides on the steam railway over the weekend and full access to other railway attractions and museums.
Tickets are available by calling the railway directly on 01773 747 674 during office hours or by visiting the Indietracks website.
