This summer’s festival features a fantastic Irish card that includes The Scratch, Lyra, Pa Sheehy, Le Boom, Erica Cody, Wild Youth and more; while international acts such as Becky Hill and Iceland’s Dadi Freyr will make their INDIE debuts.
“INDIE’s reputation as one of Ireland’s leading music festivals continues to grow year on year, attracting music fans from throughout Ireland and beyond. We are delighted to be returning to Mitchelstown this coming July with the IMRO Stage, which will showcase some of the finest musicians from Ireland,” said Keith Johnson, Director of Marketing & Membership IMRO.
Legendary Irish DJ, Jenny Greene of 2FM is already announced as the main headliner for the new Dance Arena and she will be joined by Tracy Clifford, Stevie G and Dec Pierce’s Block Rockin’ Beats over the weekend as well as new additions like Declan McKenna and 49th & Main.
INDIE began life in 2006 around Mitchelstown’s venues and Market Square, and its move to a new site on the outskirts of town in 2010 put INDIE on the international festival map – attracting artists such as Manic Street Preachers, Public Enemy, Biffy Clyro, Lewis Capaldi, Bastille, Basement Jaxx, De La Soul, Tom Odell, Editors, The Dandy Warhols, to play alongside some of Ireland’s finest live acts including The Coronas, Hozier, Kodaline and Lyra.
