I am struck speechless by the nape of your neck.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/culture/2010/ ... -festivals
Indie fans are often accused of being trainspotters. That Venn diagram overlap is given life at Indietracks, a gem of a festival that we really ought not to tell you about, because it might spoil it. The Midland Railway Centre in Derbyshire plays host to this dense concentration of cutie-pop and below-the-radar guitar bands. Last year, bands played on moving trains. Ticket numbers (2,500) are so small you can make shy advances to half the festival. Cutie revivalists the Pains Of Being Pure At Heart are joined by the reunited Primitives. All together now: "Nah nah nah nah nah/nah nah nah nah naaa-ah, we're gonna craaaash…"
Of course this would have had more influence had their list of the ten best festivals not also included Secret Garden Party and Truck from the same weekend.

I can also barely believe it's a month to go! One month! I'm all train ticketed up too. So happy the time is flying by (though I certainly don't want the summer to). Indietracks: bringing international popkids together forever in love since 2007.

bollocks, that's just defeatist talk. you just need a really big badge like they had in the 70s or you could remove all the vowels like the heathen youth of modern times.

That they wouldn't let you publish your work on badges?

Are you going to add more Es as Indietracks gets closer? I like it. You've got to pace yourself when it comes to Eing.

Anyone catch Stuart's (apparently not online) local Metro interview a couple of days ago? Two thirds of a page, it was.

Damian said he'd seen it. I missed it somehow.

I AM SO EXCITED!

I'm making an effort to listen to the bands before-hand this year, normally there are only 2 - 5 I know of, and then I just play it by ear (literally - I wander around talking to people I know and bump into until I hear something I like, and then I just follow the music). I thought it might be fun knowing a bit more this year! Can't believe this is my 3rd year already... time goes so fast!

Even if most of the music isn't quite my taste most of the time, I always come away from Indietracks feeling such love and happiness over the general DIY ethos and the strong, independent scene that exists for this sort of music, and mushy feelings for all the fans/musicians/etc whose passion means that it can be spread into all kinds of places, club nights, gigs, fanzines and events all over the world.

Even though I'm not quite sure where (if) I fit into all of that, I know how fantastically valuable it is to know there are others who like what you like. It's a great feeling! And I always come away having seen tons of friends, some really great gigs, and hopefully made some new friends. How can you not love that?

perhaps i've missed a thread, but is there any sort of anorak meetup? or are we all just a-hangin' out and a-bumpin' into each other as and when?

Letting on to each other takes time and devotion. I'll look out for those curtains.
