Indietracks 2009

On the 24th-26th of July, I went to Indietracks.

And it was great.

For the miniscule sum of £55, I got to see loads of wonderful bands. And I mean loads. In fact, if I have a moan, it’s that there were simply too many great bands on: I couldn’t see everything I wanted to. This is exactly the opposite of how I feel about most multi-band affairs.

Cats On Fire, on fire

The highlight for me was seeing Cats On Fire in rip-roaring form. Of the bands I saw, they got the best audience response, peeps were dancing, clapping and just happily shouting along.

But, really, there were so many fabulous artists – Au Revoir Simone, Butcher Boy, Eux Autres, Teenage Fanclub. And the spirit of the event was equally unique. There was a definite feel-good vibe for the entire weekend.

So, see you at Indietracks 2010! 🙂
