Dates for next year's Indietracks: 6-8 July 2012

Hello! We're SUPER excited to announce that next year's Indietracks festival will be held on 6-8 July 2012 at the Midland Railway in Derbyshire.

We have decided to hold the festival earlier than usual this year. Usually the festival takes place on the last weekend of July, but we became aware that clashing with the Olympics that weekend might have meant higher travel and accommodation prices for bands and festival-goers.

If you would like to make suggestions for bands playing next year, please visit the Indietracks thread on the Anorak forum and leave your suggestions there.

Any bands wishing to apply to to play at the festival should e-mail with a short biography and a web link to their music (no MP3 attachments please) by 30 November 2011.

Tickets will be onsale shortly, and will be available from the Midland Railway website. For the latest news, please subscribe to this blog, follow us on Twitter or sign-up to our e-newsletter.

We also have a few Indietracks canvas bags left over from this year's festival. Perfect for carrying records, nipping to the shops or as a Christmas gift for anyone who loves pop music and steam trains! You can pick one up from the Make Do And Mend Bandcamp page for just £5. This includes a free download of this year's 40-track Indietracks compilation and all the proceeds go to the Midland Railway charity:

Hope to see you next July!
