First bands and early bird tickets for Indietracks 2011!
We’re very excited to announce that international indiepop favourites Jeffrey Lewis and The Hidden Cameras will be among the headliners of this year’s Indietracks Festival.
Early bird tickets are now on sale for the festival, which takes place on the weekend of 29-31 July 2011 at a steam railway in Derbyshire.
Jeffrey Lewis has become one of the front-runners of the anti-folk movementsince releasing his official debut album on Rough Trade in 2001. The New Yorker has been described as “the best lyricist working in the US today” by Jarvis Cocker, and as “the Big Apple’s best-kept secret” by the NME.
The Hidden Cameras, hailing from Toronto, have released seven albums, including three albums and an EP on Rough Trade, and are the brainchild of Joel Gibb. Their live performances are often elaborate, high-energy shows, featuring go-go dancers in balaclavas and choirs. The BBC described their most recent album, Origin:Orphan, as “a serious and sophisticated musical force to be reckoned with”.
We’ve also announced seven further artists from across the globe: Math and Physics Club (US), The Wendy Darlings (France), The Sweet Nothings (UK), Next Time Passions (Greece), Very Truly Yours (US), The Garlands (Sweden) and Zipper (Spain). Further headliners and day bands will be announced very soon!
