An idyllic site -- complete with its own railway station -- was the perfect place for indie-pop fans to hop on board the train to Indietracks.
Indietracks FestivalCity: Butterley, Derbyshire, England
Venue: Midland Railway
Day One It is quiet in Butterley's Golden Valley Caravan and Camping Park on a blue-skied Saturday morning. The silence as we wake inside tents is slowly broken by humming birds, crickets, and the sound of a cooked breakfast being fried from afar. The Indietracks site in Butterley, near the old town of Ripley in the Derbyshire countryside, is beautifully spaced-out. The Golden Valley site, where the majority of Indietracks people are camping for the two nights of the festival, features duck ponds, swans, gardens (with a variety of blossoming bushes), and a picturesque, winding country road that leads into a quaint and charming steam railway station.
