Our Stages
Each year around 50 new and established indiepop artists perform across four stages at the festival.


The outdoor stage:
A picturesque stage overlooking the railway station and a spacious green area. Ideal for dancing at the front or sitting on the grass with an ice cream.  (Photo: Bob Stuart – underexposed.org.uk)


The indoor stage:
A large locomotive shed which houses some of the railway’s diesel locomotive when it isn’t being used for bands and discos at the festival.


Church stage
St Saviours church is a Victorian tin taberacle, originally built in 1898 and rescued from a railway village before being rebuilt at Swanwick Junction.  (Photo: Bob Stuart – underexposed.org.uk)

Art and craft workshops + kids’ areas
We have a range of craft workshops every year, suitable for children and adults. In the past we’ve made bow ties, album covers, sock puppets, bunting, and masks, as well as holding quizzes, song writing classes and lots more!


This year Indietracks will also host IndieKids, a new drop-in craft and messy play area, as well as IndieTots, a soft play area aimed at under-fives which will also provide tea and refreshments. This area will also host discos for kids of all ages in the early evening! (Photo: Fabric Nation)
