With the date for the Indiependence Music & Arts Festival at the Deer Farm, Mitchelstown fast approaching (July 29 to 31), the new VIP Garden tickets and three tiers of early bird tickets have already sold out.

However, there are still some weekend camping tickets on sale at €119 but you are advised to book soon as these are likely to sell out in advance.

More acts added to the line-up include August Wells, Jack O’Rourke, Slow Motion Heroes and Jamie Stanton as well as new acts for the Red Bull Bar (Arveene, Disconauts, Get Down Edits, Stevie G, Eddie Kay, Kaily, Bedlam DJs, Deep Blue, Izzy Bartak-Healy, Aishling Murphy) with more to follow.


In what is INDIE’s strongest Spoken Word line-up to date with curator Andrew Stanley, new names just added include Damo Clark, Totally Wired, Eric Lalor, Ryan Cullen, Edwin Salmon, Niamh Marron, Emman Idama, Peter Flanagan, Emma Doran, David Reilly, Trevor Browne and Marcus O’Laoire.
