Help needed for article about Indietracks

Post by gltownley » Sun Jul 14, 2013 21:19

Hello
I'm looking to write an article about my first Indietracks experience this year, but rather than it being about the music, I want it to be about the festival in general, and the people who go.
I have already been in touch with the organisers, and they are going to talk to me some time on the Sunday, but would really like to talk to some of the festival goers as well.
Is there anyone on the forum who would be willing to meet up for a chat? I'm interested in finding out why people go to Indietracks, what makes it a great festival, and to hear any stories from previous years.
Also, who are the interesting people/ characters that I should try and spend some time with over the weekend?
Any help people can give will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Gareth

I'm in, contact me so we can arrange the meeting. Be aware I'm Italian, so my English is not prefect, but it should be good enough to help you.

You should speak to Michael Zakes who comes over from the US for Indietracks every year. And Jorge and Eva and the rest of the gang who come over from Spain each year. I can't imagine Indietracks being Indietracks without them.

Thanks Barto, that's great. What's the best way to arrange meeting up? Shall we arrange a time and place, or is there some way I can contact you over the weekend - Twitter perhaps?

Thanks Ian. Where would I be likely to find them, or do you have any idea how I might get in touch with them?

Excellent, Cheers.
Hope their English is better than my Spanish! (I'm sure it will be.)

Someone got married at Indietracks either last year or the year before. That might be a good thing to mention!

I don't know the details though, sorry. Might have been someone from Ballboy? I don't know.

Pretty sure it was Gary from Ballboy. Got married in the signal box! Try contacting them via their website http://www.ballboymusic.com/news/ or maybe @ballboymusic on Twitter. All the best.

Zakesey isn't coming this year :(

Might wear some denim shorts and knee high white socks in his honour on Saturday. Permanently clutching a pint of 3.8% bitter.
