Thank you for coming!!

Thanks so much to everyone who came along to Indietracks this year! We had an amazing time once again, and we really hope you did too!

Huge thanks to all the fantastic artists and DJs, workshop organisers, caterers, kids’ area entertainers and stall holders, and big thanks also to Matt and Xcite Audio Services for doing the stages and sound so brilliantly, and to Claire Goldthorp for doing all our artwork, bags and t-shirts.

And as always, a massive thanks to the Midland Railway staff and trustees and our volunteers who worked incredibly hard to make Indietracks happen this year.

Finally, a huge thanks to all of YOU for coming along and supporting Indietracks and the railway again this year! We enjoyed all your singing, dancing, workshop creations, fine taste in real ales and your karaoke performances, and you made it a really special atmosphere this year. You also raised some really important money for the railway charity again, which is really appreciated – thank you!

If you’re already missing Indietracks as much as we are, here’s a few things you can do…

Share your photos and videos: Please pop your best photos on Instagram, Twitter and Flickr, and tag them with #Indietracks. Please also send any amazing Youtube / Vimeo links to – we’ll try and stick our favourites up on this website in the next few weeks.

Listen to the bands: If you’re missing the festival, or wondering what it’s all about, it’s still possible to download our Indietracks 2017 compilation, which features 45 amazing songs by artists who played this year. All proceeds from the compilation go to the railway charity. Thanks so much to everyone who’s downloaded a copy already – you’ve raised over £2,000 for the railway so far!
