What time do the gates open? I've completely forgotten- is it about 6ish?

Are you camping Neil & Nik? If so there's a great little cafe on the campsite, doing breakfasts and all sorts x

Thanks heidisuperhero, we checked the place out in May. You are quite right it's a great café. Ran by the owner's mum.. she is a star, a truly lovely woman.

Who do I need to schmooze to get some gluten-free beer available behind the bar? I can't drink warm rum and coke all weekend and I hate cider.

Hi Leon, we'll ask the railway in case this is something they can get in.

That's great Andy, thanks. I can suggest some beers if they need pointing in the right direction. I guarantee I'll drink it.

Yes, please suggest away. Apparently they're not that easy to track down. We can't promise anything but will try!

I haven't tried that many yet as they aren't easy to get hold of locally, but there are few listed here:

The Wold Top 'Against The Grain' is very nice and you can get 18x500ml bottles for £36 from http://www.gluten-freeshop.co.uk. They also have a lager in cans called 'SAXON', which I want to try just for the name.

4 weeks to go! Is there going to be a compilation this year? Or a page on the site for pre/post indietracks shows?

Yes, we'll be releasing a compilation fairly soon.

We'll also put a page of pre/post shows on the website if there's a quite a few of them again this year. Send us an email if you're putting one on: indietracksfestival@gmail.com

There seems to be fewer of them this year from what I can tell and not so many bands looking for shows. Am playing 6 pre-indietracks and putting on 1 post-indietracks gigs though. Will email when we have the details for the last one.

Speaking of pre-Indietracks gigs, are there any bands touring around it who are still without a gig on Monday 21st or the week afterwards (apart from the Monday)?

Is there any more news on the campsite disco? Last thing I heard was the council were still deciding whether they will grant a licence this year. It may well be too late to organise it now anyway??

I phoned up to book camping this afternoon and got asked whether I wanted to DJ in the campsite (they've obviously not heard my Whitehouse/Taylor Swift DJ set before). So it would seem something is going ahead, and the campsite themselves are on the look out for DJs - though might just be in the bar...

That sounds promising - thanks for the update :)

If times a bit tight to get proper sets together, we could maybe get a few people to do an hour each? Does that sound like a good idea? I'd be up for that.
And we just can't wait to make more mistakes and to fluff our breaks, and to stuff our faces with cake.

We think the campsite have found people now. It's great that they're going ahead with it.

So are the campsite DJs chosen by the campsite?
