Indiependence Music Festival!
It's back and better than ever!
Indiependence, located just outside Mitchelstown, Co. Cork, have managed to secure a new and improved site for this year's festival. Details on the official website note a limestone basin (apparently this means that should it rain, it provides great drainage) and a vastly increased acreage that will provide ample space for the Bavaria Main Stage, the Cyprus Avenue Arena, The Square Stage, a comedy tent (yet another new addition to the festival), as well as indoor bars and great food.
The festivities will take place over the August Bank Holiday Weekend - July 30th to August 2nd.
So far the line-up includes: Reverend & The Makers | The Coronas | Jape | Delorentos | Fred | Codes | The Chapters | Wiggle | O Emperor | Fish Go Deep | The Flaws | Yes Cadets | Abedesi Shank | The Riptide Movement | Panama Kings | Hoarsebox | Disconauts | The Loaded Kings | The Vital Spark | Dashka | Heritage Centre | The Funeral Suits | Sweet Jane | Ghostcat | The 202’s | Pocket Promise | The Hot Sprockets | The Parade | Deaf Radio | Death Disco | DC Tempest | Autumn Owls | Ana Gog | Ladydoll
The organisers have promised to announce the festival headliners soon. In recent years we have seen The Proclaimers, the Frank & Walters, The Blizzards, the Sultans of Ping FC, Ocean Colour Scene and Super Furry Animals, so it could be interesting! However, there are already quite a few smallers acts announced who should be enough to garner significant attention.
Highly recommended anyway. Always enjoyable, and with a maximum capacity of 5000, it's a great way to see and discover bands in an intimate setting yet still enjoy the festival atmosphere.
