This will be Douglas native, Cian Ducrot’s first performance at the music festival in Mitchelstown.

Ducrot has been very vocal about how his life has dramatically changed from busking and becoming homeless to selling out gigs across Ireland the UK.

Dublin duo, Belter’s Only have also been skyrocketing up the charts in recent months, with sold out tours all around the country.

The music festival creates an economic influx of approximately €2m in Mitchelstown each year.

INDIE has a great relationship with the local people and local businesses in Mitchelstown, often incorporating local charities and the community into the festival.

INDIE began life in 2006 around Mitchelstown's venues and Market Square, and its move to a new site on the outskirts of town in 2010 put INDIE on the international festival map - attracting artists such as Biffy Clyro, Lewis Capaldi, Bastille, Basement Jaxx, De La Soul, Tom Odell, Editors, The Dandy Warhols, Hozier, Kodaline and Lyra.

Tickets for INDIE 2023 go on sale this Saturday, November 5 at 10am on Ticketmaster.
