UK indie legends, Primal Scream, are the latest headline act to be added to Indiependence Music & Arts Festival, taking place on the August bank holiday weekend at Deer Farm, Mitchelstown.

They join a growing line-up that already features Walking on Cars, Jake Bugg, Cast, Le Galaxie and Sigala, along with a whole new cohort of stand out Irish talent.

Festival organiser Shane Dunne told The Avondhu that it was great to have Primal Scream as one of the headliners for the popular festival and said there are more announcements in store over the coming months for music fans.

Now in its 13th year, Indiependence has grown into one of Ireland’s biggest and most loved events, drawing international acts like Basement Jaxx, Public Enemy, De La Soul and Editors to play alongside the best names in Irish music, in the scenic foothills of the Galtee Mountains. 

Tickets have been selling fast for INDIE18 with several tiers for the fesitival already sold out.

Other acts announced for Deer Farm in 2018 include King Kong Company, HamsandwicH, Mylo, Everything Everything, Tom Grennan, Wild Youth Le Boom and The Blizzards. 

Weekend camping tickets are currently available.
