After two years off, the Mitchelstown-based festival is finally back and it has announced its full line-up for INDIE22.
The festival takes place on the Bank Holiday weekend of July 29 -31.
New acts announced yesterday were Declan McKenna, 49th and Main. Jenny Greene, Kelly-Anne Byrne, Tracy Clifford, Stevie G and Dec Pierce’s Block Rockin’ Beats will also be playing the newly announced dance arena. The arena holds around 2000.
They join acts like Fatboy Slim, Rudimental, Bastille. Already announced Irish acts include The Academic, The Scratch, Lyra, Pa Sheehy, Le Boom, Soulé, Erica Cody and Wild Youth.
Thursday's launch also saw INDIE22 organisers reveal a partnership with Mitchelstown and Ballygiblin GAA. The initiative will help coach hundreds of local children over a four-year period that is already showing signs of success.
INDIE director Kieran Walsh said, "When we heard the GAA in Mitchelstown was looking for coaches we decided we wanted to help contribute alongside other local businesses to the local training fund."
"INDIE has given to local charities every year since it began. The festival is owned by local people, run by local people. All five directors played with local clubs in Mitchelstown - everything is local based."
INDIE22 also announced that Day Tickets for the festival will go on sale from Saturday, March 5 at 10am from Ticketmaster.
