INDIE has grown into one of
Ireland’s most successful and long-running festivals since it began life in
Mitchelstown in 2006. Its move to the scenic Deer Farm just

itself onto the international map, attracting artists such as
Manic Street Preachers, Public Enemy, Basement Jaxx, De La Soul, Tom
Odell, Editors, The Dandy Warhols and much more
over the years. INDIE19 saw stunning performances from headliners
Lewis Capaldi, Biffy Clyro, Catfish & the Bottlemen and Gavin
James with 15,000 people descending on the picturesque Galtee
Mountains site. Synonymous with nurturing exciting emerging artists
the likes of Kodaline, Walking On Cars, Picture This, The Coronas and Hozier
have performed some of their first festival shows at INDIE while breakthrough
acts such as Bastille have returned to INDIE several years later following huge
