A MERE handful of tickets remain on sale for this weekend’s Indiependence Music and Arts festival, taking place in Mitchlestown - just a 45 minute drive from Limerick city.

Kodaline and UK dance act Basement Jaxx are among headliners at the festival, which celebrates its tenth birthday this year and has duly delivered a strong line-up that also includes Ash, the Mark Lanegan Band and The Dandy Warhols.

Indiependence, running from Friday to Sunday, takes place in Deer Farm - just a short hop from Limerick and popular with festival goers in the region as a result - and is the brainchild of UL graduate Shane Dunne.

Securing the services of Basement Jaxx and arguably the biggest Irish band of the past 12 months in Kodaline is quite a coup for Dunne and his team, who have been quietly growing the 5,000 capacity festival in recent years, picking up awards and plaudits along the way.

The line-up for the weekend is shaping up to feature Kodaline on Sunday, while Basement Jaxx play Friday, Ash on Saturday and The Dandy Warhols join Kodaline on Sunday night. A full day by day breakdown of the festival - plus ticket information - is available online.

Weekend and Sunday tickets are now sold out, while limited Friday and Saturday day tickets remain on sale.

Limerick’s own Hermitage Green will play at Indiependence, while acts such as Embrace, Foy Vance, The Academic, All Tvvins and the Original Rudeboys are also on a very impressive bill that includes Jape, Gavin James, Admiral Fallow, Little Hours and many more.
