Indietracks is this year headlined by Camera Obscura, Emmy the Great and Au Revoir Simone, with the final headline act due to be announced shortly. They will be joined by hotly-tipped Butcher Boy, scuzzy guitar-lovers The Manhattan Love Suicides and sophisticated popsters Help Stamp Out Loneliness. Other bands playing Indietracks include BMX Bandits, Lucky Soul, Frank and Walters and The School.
