Indietracks takes place on the weekend of 28-30 July 2017 at our picturesque 1950s steam railway in Derbyshire. It’s a celebration of independent, creative and DIY pop music, with bands playing across the heritage railway site, including on our main outdoor stage, in a locomotive shed, in a tin tabernacle and on the steam trains themselves.
Who’s playing in 2017?
Artists announced so far include The Wedding Present, Cate Le Bon, Martha, Joanna Gruesome, The Wave Pictures and The Tuts. Please visit our line up page for full details.

Each year around 50 new and established DIY / indie pop artists perform across a range of stages at the festival. Visitors are free to enjoy steam train rides, railway attractions and museums, discos, art and craft workshops, great food and a selection of real ales. Read more on our what’s it like? page.
