Indiependence Music and Arts Festival once again brings some of the biggest names of the summer festival circuit to Deer Farm in Mitchelstown, County Cork, from August 3 - 5.

FRIDAY sees Walking on Cars headline the Main Stage at INDIE18, with UK producer and DJ Sigala providing the beats before the evening’s grand finale. Joining them on a rapid-fire Friday night are Circa Waves, The Blizzards, HamsandwicH, Wyvern Lingo, Little Hours, Roe, Ailbhe Reddy, Inhaler, Sean OB, Mindriot and more.

SATURDAY welcomes Indipendence debuts and a double bill of two of the UK’s finest indie artists of recent times, the NME and Q Award-winning Jake Bugg and Kate Nash. Complimenting this is some of Ireland’s best live talent right now, including Delorentos, And So I Watch You From Afar, and King Kong Company. Throw in some of the most precocious young talent out there like Wild Youth, Bitch Falcon and Fontaines DC, alongside top festival beats from Mylo and Moxie, and it’s the perfect INDIE mix right in the middle of the weekend.

SUNDAY night will welcome one of the greatest indie acts of all time to Deer Farm – Primal Scream. The Mercury Prize winners have released era-defining tunes and top the bill of a powerful Sunday evening that features Everything Everything, Hudson Taylor, Le Galaxie, Le Boom, Tom Greenan, Marc O’Reilly and Cast. Great new music also will showcase throughout Sunday, including True Tides, Thanks Brother, 1000 Beasts, and Aine Cahill.

INDIE's new Urban Village stage is set to bring some of the best contemporary Irish hip hop, RnB, pop and soul with the likes of Mango X Mathman, Kojaque, Tebi Rex, Erica Cody, Shookrah and more, while the INDIE Comedy Stage is yet to be revealed.
