Around 50 indiepop bands from across the globe will be playing across four stages at Indietracks: the outdoor stage; the indoor stage, the church and on the steam trains themselves. The festival will also host a range of art and craft workshops and a selection of discos after the bands finish.
This is the ninth annual Indietracks festival, which takes place at the Midland Railway Butterley (a heritage railway located in Ripley), in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside from Friday 24th until Sunday 26th of July.
The site houses a whole range of lovingly restored steam diesels and locomotives. Festival goers are allowed to have unlimited rides on the steam railway over the weekend and full access to other railway attractions including a farm and museum.
Tickets are now available at an early bird discount price of £68 (weekend) and £37 (day). These cheaper prices are available until 5pm on Sunday 3 May. After this date, prices will be £75 (weekend) and £39 (day). Weekend tickets for children aged 5-15 are £10, or £6 for a day ticket. Children under 5 get in free.
