MUSIC fans in Cork can make a head start on their 2020 festival planning at the weekend, with tickets for Indie20 going on sale this Saturday.
This year was the Mitchelstown festival’s biggest to date. Some 15,000 people descended on the picturesque Galtee Mountains site to hear performances from headliners Lewis Capaldi, Biffy Clyro, Catfish & the Bottlemen, and Gavin James.
With the first acts for Indie20 due to be announced in the next few weeks, music fans have a chance to buy early bird tickets this weekend at just €129. The full price for the tickets will be €159.
Tickets will go on sale on tickets.ie at 10am on Saturday and also from a special pop-up shop at Walsh’s Yard Bar, Mitchelstown, from 10am to midday on the same day.
Indiependence has grown into one of Ireland’s longest-running festivals since it began life in Mitchelstown in 2006.
Its move to the Deer Farm site on the outskirts of the town in 2010 led to it becoming an international venue and attracting artists such as Manic Street Preachers, Public Enemy, Basement Jaxx, De La Soul, Tom Odell, Editors, and The Dandy Warhols.
Attendees have also been witness to early appearances by the best upcoming Irish acts of recent years, including Kodaline, Walking On Cars, and Picture This.
Breakthrough acts such as Bastille also returned to Indiependence several years later following huge international success.
Indie20 will be a strictly over-18s event and will see the addition of new campsite options to manage the festival space better.
