Indiependence festival to return to Mitchelstown in 2016

ORGANISERS of the hugely popular Mitchelstown festival Indiependence have confirmed that it will return to the town in 2016, with a limited amount of early bird tickets going on sale last Friday.

Indie15 was a sold out success in a year that saw the festival grow from 5,000 to 8,000 people, welcoming Kodaline, Basement Jaxx, Ash, Mark Lanegan Band, Jape and many more to Deer Farm, as well as comedy and spoken word stages.

It is the brainchild of UL graduate Shane Dunne, who said the team was “delighted to be back in Mitchelstown for Indie16”, the 11th year of the festival.

“We’re looking forward to announcing some big names in Spring 2016 and advise anyone looking to buy early birds to get them soon before they sell out,” he said.
