Indiependence looking for a new home

Indiependence music festival is to leave Mitchelstown in Co. Cork in 2021.

The town had been the festival's home for the last 15 years, but organisers say they're now looking for a new home.

As with many festivals, Indiependence was cancelled this year due to COVID-19.

Organisers had allowed ticket holders to keep them ahead of next year's event, however they now say that they will be refunded 'in time for Christmas'.

In a statement posted on social media, organisers say:

"We are sad to announce that the 15-year relationship between Indiependence and Mitchelstown is at an end.

"This is a situation we hoped would never arise, but we have been left with no other option.

"We have taken the decision to protect the ticketholder funds and ensure that everyone is refunded in time for Christmas.

"We have seen the best of Irish and international talent come to our town over the years; we sang, we danced and, at times, we cried.

"This is not a decision made lightly, it is with a heavy heart that we see no other option.

"This is not the end of Indiependence, we are looking to the future, to something new — unfortunately, we cannot do that in Mitchelstown in the foreseeable future."
