We’re very sad to announce that we have decided to cancel this year’s Indietracks festival due to the coronavirus outbreak.
We are so grateful to everyone who booked tickets, and to all the amazing artists, volunteers, staff and stage crew, and everyone else who has worked on putting the festival together this year. Thank you so much for your support and we’re sorry that we’re unable to go ahead this year. While it is a hard decision to take, the current circumstances have meant that it was the only option to ensure that we could keep everybody safe.
