Indietracks podcast with Au Revoir Simone

Okaaaay, so you’ve hopefully seen that we’ve announced lots of the bands and the early bird tickets for this year’s festival. That means it’s also now time to bring the Indietracks blog out of its winter hibernation! Between now and the festival in July we’ll be posting up news, interviews, the occasional quiz and other random gossip and silliness that vaguely relates to the festival.

Today, we’re pleased to bring you the first of a series of free podcasts, which include interviews and music from last year’s festival. They’ve been put together by Josh Morris from Xpress Radio at Cardiff University. If you were at the festival last year you may well have been interviewed by Josh or wondered who the guy with the microphone talking to bands in the signal box was!

The first podcast has an interview with last year’s Friday headliners Au Revoir Simone, as well as Downdime, Loyal Trooper and some happy campers. Also, spookily (as this was recorded last year), the podcast also features an interview and music from Be Like Pablo, who are appearing at the festival this year. You can download it free from: http://www.mediafire.com/?zvqgo3vmcja

We’d love it if you’d like to send us any features to put on the blog. Perhaps you’ve come along to (or played in a band at) a previous Indietracks and would like to send us your memories or share a video? Or you may want to write a festival survival guide, an interview with one of the bands, a quiz or competition, or a picture bingo game (we’re not really sure what this is, but think it means things to spot at Indietracks, with points allocated on a scale depending on likelihood of seeing them). Also, any funny pictures of llamas or other animals from the farm on the festival site are always appreciated!

If you’d like to send us anything, please email indietrackspress@gmail.com
