Following her sold out show at the 3Arena Dublin last weekend, SIGRID has been revealed as the first headline act for INDIE20, set to take place from July 31 – August 2, 2020 at the Deer Farm, Mitchelstown.
The ground-breaking Norwegian pop star and BBC Sound of 2018 winner, Sigrid’s debut album Sucker Punch has cemented the 22-year-old’s breakthrough year, which has also seen her play incredible jam-packed festival performances at Electric Picnic and Longitude.
This month Sigrid has also released the first new music since her critically acclaimed debut, writing ‘Home To You’ for the motion picture The Aeronauts, starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones.
Since winning the BBC Sound of 2018, Sigrid’s unforgettably impassioned live performances have seen a meteoric rise and international success with her defiant, rebellious pop songs.
Sigrid’s Spotify following has tripled since the start of the year, with streaming numbers reaching almost 400M globally, highlighting the breadth of Sigrid’s maturing talent and aptitude for song writing.

INDIE has grown into one of Ireland’s most successful and long-running festivals since it began life in Mitchelstown in 2006. Its move to the scenic Deer Farm just on the outskirts of the town in 2010 allowed INDIE to put itself onto the international map, attracting artists such as Manic Street Preachers, Public Enemy, Basement Jaxx, De La Soul, Tom Odell, Editors, The Dandy Warhols and much more over the years.
The Mitchelstown festival has also been synonymous with providing a stage for the best upcoming Irish acts and has seen the likes of Kodaline, Walking On Cars, Picture This and more perform some of their first festival shows at INDIE, as well as monstrous performances from The Coronas and Hozier over the years. Breakthrough acts such as Bastille have also returned to INDIE several years later following huge international success.
