STEREOPHONICS have been announced as the latest headliners for the Mitchelstown-based Indiependence festival next summer.

The original lineup of Stereophonics have previously headlined Slane and Oxegen at the height of their success and have released 11 albums to date.
The current lineup includes original members Kelly Jones, Richard Jones, Adam Zindani and Jamie Morrison.

Early bird tickets for the festival have already sold out.
Indiependence 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 it grow, attracting artists such as Manic Street Preachers, Public Enemy, Basement Jaxx, De La Soul, Tom Odell, Editors, The Dandy Warhols and many more over the years.
Tickets available for the festival are available at tickets.ie. More announcements are expected in the coming weeks.
Cork is set for a bumper summer concerts with a whole host of artists announced for several different venues.
Westlife will be the big draw at Páirc Uí Chaoimh, while the nearby Live at the Marquee series has already announced huge acts such as Crowded House, Sinead O’Connor, Dina Ross, Cat Stevens and Dido.
Musgrave Park will host the likes of The National, Lewis Capaldi, Gerry Cinnamon, David Gray, Picture This, Dermot Kennedy and the Chemical Brothers.
