Indietracks is a unique summer music festival, combining steam trains and indiepop music!
It takes place at the Midland Railway Centre in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside, and our next festival will be on the weekend of 29-31 July 2016.
Here’s a short trailer from Jeanie Finlay’s new Indietracks documentary, which explains what the festival’s all about:
