The first three acts confirmed to play next year’s Indiependence music festival in Cork have been announced today. The 12th annual festival at Deer Farm in Mitchelstown will play host to Manic Street Preachers, The Coronas, and Sigma from August 4-6 2017.
Last year’s Indiependence was headlined by Editors, Bell X1, The Kooks, Ash, and Walking On Cars with the likes of BARQ, MINDRIOTmt Mt, Bitch Falcon, Oh Boland, The Strypes, Idlewild, Wyvern Lingo, The Frank And Walters, King Kong Company, Otherkin and Saint Sister also playing over the weekend.
Welsh rockers, Manic Street Preachers make their very first appearance at Indiependence but they are no strangers to headline slots after playing at Glastonbury, T in the Park, V Festival and Reading. The Manics have won eleven NME Awards, eight Q Awards and four BRIT Awards and their anthemic tunes will rock the Rebel County in August.
Four years since they last headlined the festival, The Coronas return. The band's latest album, The Long Way, has already achieved platinum sales, with a new album out in 2017.
Leeds drum n bass duo Sigma have already sold over 3 million singles from their 2015 debut album Life, and had two Number 1 singles with ‘Nobody To Love’ and ‘Changing’.
Early bird tickets sold out within 24 hours and fans will be happy to hear that subsequent ticket tiers will remain at 2016 prices – there will be no increase in the price of any indie tickets in 2017.
