Indietracks 2017

We’re very excited to announce that The Wedding Present, Cate Le Bon, Martha, Joanna Gruesome, The Wave Pictures and The Tuts are among 38 artists to be confirmed today for this year’s Indietracks festival.

The festival 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 its main outdoor stage, in a locomotive shed, a tin tabernacle and on the steam trains themselves.

The above artists are joined by Shopping, Monkey Swallows The Universe, TeenCanteen, The Orchids, The Hearing, Peaness, Personal Best, The Hayman Kupa Band, Grace Petrie and Kid Canaveral.

Plus, the following bands are also joining the bill: Charmpit, Chorusgirl, Cola Jet Set, Cowtown, Crumbs, Dan Webber, Daniel vs the World, David Leach, Evripidis and his Tragedies, Garden Centre, Lilith Ai, Maybe Don’t, Milky Wimpshake, MJ Hibbett and the Validators, Model Village, The Perfect English Weather, Pillow Queens, Rainbow Reservoir, Red Red Eyes, Schande, Suggested Friends, and th’sheridans. There’s biographies for all the bands over on our line up page.

Martha will headline our outdoor stage on the Friday night, and we’ll announce the days for the other bands shortly. Around a dozen more artists plus DJs will be added to the bill in the next month or so.
