The Streets have been revealed as the second headline act for INDIE20, following the announcement of SIGRID as the Friday night headliner.
Fronted by multi-instrumentalist Mike Skinner, The Streets produced a string of massive hits during a heady rise to international prominence with ‘Has It Come to This?’, ‘Fit But You Know It’, ‘Dry Your Eyes’, ‘When You Wasn’t Famous’ and ‘Prangin’ Out’.
The Streets also enjoyed two Number 1 albums; A Grand Don’t Come for Free and The Hardest Way to Make an Easy Living. Taking a break in 2011 while solo projects were pursued, The Streets reformed in 2017 and released their first new music in six years on streaming services.
Following INDIE’s biggest festival to date at Deer Farm this summer, Early Bird tickets and Tier 1 for INDIE20 have sold out with a limited number of Tier 2 tickets available. 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.
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 on the outskirts of the town in 2010 allowed INDIE to put 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.
INDIE has also been synonymous with providing a stage for the best upcoming Irish acts and has seen the likes of Kodaline, Walking On Cars, Picture This and more perform some of their first festival shows at INDIE, as well as monstrous performances from The Coronas and Hozier over the years. Breakthrough acts such as Bastille have also returned to INDIE several years later following huge international success.
INDIE20 will be a strictly over-18s event and will see the addition of the new GREEN Campsite in an effort to manage the festival space better and improve the experience for all. Admission to the GREEN Campsite can be obtained after buying a standard weekend ticket and then contacting Pamper the Camper or Festi-Huts (contact details on the festival website). This will provide access to the GREEN Campsite and to the VIP Bar in the Main Arena.
