    "INDIEPENDENCE Music & Arts Festival Gets
    Camping Green Light
    Camping Facilities Announced
    Its been a while coming to fruition but the INDIEPENDENCE Music & Arts Festival has finally been given the green light for an official festival campsite at O'Connell Park, Mitchelstown. This means that festival goers heading along to see headliners Ocean Colour Scene and The Super Furry Animals along with top Irish acts, The Blizzards, Mundy, Fight Like Apes, The Frank & Walters, Director, Delorentos, Fish Go Deep, Wallis Bird, The Chapters and over 50 more top acts and DJ's will now be able to stay on site for the weekend and enjoy the full festival experience!

    But here's the best bit, festival organisers in these recessionary times have decided not to charge any extra for the campsite! Anybody with a €59 weekend ticket purchased from ticketmaster even where these tickets state "weekend non-camping" will be given access to the campsite. The site is adjacent to the festival arena and car parking facilities are less than 5 minutes walk away.

    The site will open at 6pm on Friday July 31st and close at 6pm on Monday August 3rd"
