My word, those lads and lasses who arrange Indietracks are on the ball. Spurred on by wild, salacious internet rumours that this year's event would be the last, they've only gone an announced next year's Olympic-busting dates. The world's best music festival will be held from 6-8 July in 2012.
A missive from Indietracks HQ read like this:
"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.
"Tickets are due to be on sale shortly, and will be available from the Midland Railway website.
"Any bands wishing to apply to play at the festival should e-mail with a short biography and a web link to their music by November 30, 2011."
You know what to do, pop-makers.
