Welcome to the Indietracks blog!

Hello everyone and welcome to the blog for the 2008 Indietracks Festival!


We’re an indiepop festival, only in our second year, held in the grounds of the Midland Railway in Ripley, Derbyshire on July 26-27, 2008.

This year the festival is being headlined by the Wedding Present and Darren Hayman (formerly of Hefner). Around 50 bands have been announced so far, including newer bands such as The Wave Pictures, The Kabeedies, The Bobby McGees and KateGoes. Tickets cost £45 for the weekend or £25 for a day ticket, and include unlimited free rides on the steam train – bargain!

We’ll be posting here regularly to keep you up to date with all the latest news from the festival, including new additions to the bill, interviews with bands, competitions and lots more!
To find out more about the festival, there are reviews and photographs from last year, and an Anorak forum discussion thread about all things Indietracks-related, including accomodation and transport.

Get in touch if you’d like to find out more, or if you have fond memories of last year and would like to write about them here. If you have a livejournal or other blog, please add us to your friends list or link to us!
