Thanks for coming!

Can it really be Monday already? How did the weekend fly past so quickly? It seems like only five minutes ago since we were perusing the real ales and readying ourselves to watch the opening bands.

First off, we want to say thank you to all the bands, DJs, workshoppers and merchandise tent volunteers who worked over the weekend - you did such a brilliant job! Secondly, we want to say a huge, huge thank you to all the Midland Railway staff and volunteers who worked so tirelessly over the weekend to make the festival so fantastic. We really can't thank you enough for all of your work - you're amazing!

And, most of all, we want to say a massive thanks to YOU for coming. We really value all the support that you continue to give us year after year, and also for all the helpful suggestions and feedback that you continue to give us. Thanks in particular for being so patient and understanding when we had a technical hitch with the Outdoor Stage on Saturday night - we really appreciated it!

You will have hopefully noticed the interior renovations to the station building at the Indietracks site, which were funded by the money you donated after last year's festival. If you would like to support the Midland Railway again, the best way is to make a donation when you download the Indietracks 2011 compilation, which features 40 fantastic songs by artists who played this year's festival. All proceeds from the compilation go to the railway.

We're currently sifting through the huge amount of photos, videos and reviews currently being uploaded, and we'll bring you a selection of some of our favourites over the next few days. Do keep popping back here over the next week or so.

In the meantime, do share your Indietracks photos with the Indietracks Flickr pool. And if you'd like discuss your thoughts and memories, why not visit the Anorak forum and tell everyone about your personal highlights?

We really hope you enjoyed the weekend! If you would like to keep up-to-date with future news about the festival, please follow us on Twitter or join our Facebook page. Alternatively, please sign up to our newsletter by e-mailing
