It’s shaping up to be a great September for gig-lovers in Cork.
The organisers of the Indiependence music festival, which has been tragically sidelined for the last two years, have announced a whole raft of intimate gigs throughout September as part of their Autumn Air slate.
“Two years without INDIE makes us really happy and a little nervous to announce #AutumnAir. A series of seated shows in Mitchelstown in September with friends old and new. It’s a little different to what we’re used to but we hope to be back in fields really soon,” the festival organisers wrote on Twitter, while announcing the new project this morning.
The seated gigs will take place across four venues in Mitchelstown and will host some of most-loved names in Irish music, including The Scratch, The Coronas, The Blizzards, Bell X1, Something Happens, Aslan and plenty more.
The full list of dates and venues can be checked out in the tweet below.

The gigs are fully seated and tickets can be bought in pods of either four or six people, with prices ranging depending on the pod and the gig. Tickets will go on sale at this link from 9am on Friday (July 30th).
Asked about smaller pods, organisers said: “Really tried but the spaces are so small and with social distancing regulations between pods we’d end up with venue capacities of 40-50 people in total and we couldn’t make it work. We’re hoping that the guidance will change in August and then we’ll release pods of 2 if it does.”
