We hope you’re looking forward to the festival this weekend! Here's a quick checklist to help you plan for this year's Indietracks...

Getting In! 

When to arrive: The gates will open at 5pm on the Friday and at midday on Saturday and Sunday.

Online tickets: weekend tickets and day tickets (Saturday or Sunday) are still available online, and will remain on sale via the website over the weekend. Tickets are not sent out by post. You’ll receive a confirmation email which will contain a link to print your tickets at home. Online tickets are available from:  

Tickets on the gate: weekend tickets and day tickets will also be available on the gates, including £18 tickets for the Friday evening only. These Friday tickets are not available online, please just come along on the day.

Getting to the site: There's advice on bus, rail, taxi and car-sharing options on our Indietracks travel page. Please remember that Nottingham rail station is closed over the weekend. If you’re coming by car, please park at Butterley station (postcode DE5 3QZ) and catch the train to the festival site (unless you’re camping, in which case you can walk to the festival site from the campsite). Equally, please ask any taxis to pick you up and drop you at Butterley Station.

Advance preparation! 

Schedule: the timeslots for the bands, DJs and workshops will be printed in the festival programme and are also listed on the Indietracks schedule page.

iPhone and Android apps: For iPhone and Android mobile phone users, there are exciting, free-to-download Indietracks apps with a guide to the festival. Please search for 'Indietracks 2013' on the app stores. One of them contains a virtual glockenspiel!

Indietracks 2013 compilation: If you’re planning your music for the journey to Indietracks, don’t forget to download this year’s compilation. There’s 47 fantastic tracks featuring bands playing at this year's festival. All proceeds go to the Midland Railway charity: Indietracks 2013 compilation

Weather: There could be a mixture of hopefully sunshine and possibly rain over the weekend. Please come prepared for sunshine on a rainy day or vice versa.

Cash: There isn’t a cash machine on site, so please stock up on money beforehand. There will be real ale, fine foods and inevitably tons of band merchandise and we wouldn’t want you to miss out!

Advance reading: we've interviewed lots and lots of this year's bands on our blog, as well as listing our 10 top tips for other things to do at Indietracks over the weekend.
