All aboard for trains and tunes at Indietracks

Ripley, Derbyshire

Enjoy old-time steam railways and independent rock ‘n’ roll in the East Midlands.

Dozens of DIY pop artists and bands descend on Derbyshire during the height of summer for a three-day festival celebrating independent music and heritage railways. 

Musicians from the Indiepop tradition play in traditional railroad settings, including a locomotive shed as well as the steam trains that run through the Midland Railway centre site, taking in Swanwick Junction Station and the railway’s country park.

Indietracks is a family-friendly affair, and the festival takes pains to ensure that people from all backgrounds feel comfortable and welcomed.

Following the live music performances each day, Indietracks puts on art and crafts workshops and DJ’d discos.

Indietracks takes place 28-30 July. This year’s headliners include The Wedding Present, Cate Le Bon and Martha.
