Indiependence Music & Arts Festival has revealed some of the finest exponents of spoken word, hip hop and comedy for the Little Big Stage and Beer Hall.

Taken place on the Little Big State, the Spoken Word will be MC'd by 96FM DJ Darren Johnston and sees the return of Dundalk punk poet Jinx Lennon, following the release of his 9th album, Grow A Pair. Also performing on the Saturday, Dublin poet and author Karl Parkinson, Mike Cullen Aherne from Mitchelstown and West Cork poetry collective, Scene Of The Rhyme, featuring David Mallaghan, Richard Brennan and David Haynes who will all make their first appearances at Indiependence.

Shakalak featuring John Cummins also make their INDIE debut on the Sunday. From Dublin, Shakalak are a musical poetry collaboration of laid back grooves and vibes. Kicking off a storm on the Irish Hip Hop circuit, Cork act Spectuliv Fiktion returns to INDIE along with multi-slam champion Clara Rose Thornton from the US and Cork poet Stan Nottee takes to the INDIE Little Big Stage.

Culture Vultures makes a welcome return to the beer hall for INDIE18. A themed pop culture event of words and music, it is curated and hosted by Irish Times music writer, Tony Clayton-Lea.

The comedy will also take place in the beer hall on both the Saturday and Sunday of the festival, jam-packed full of well-known faces and the most outrageous comedy talent this country has to offer. On Saturday, star of Hardy Bucks, Owen Colgan, will be delivering his unique brand of surreal comedy. Throw in multiple Vicar Street sell-out Enya Martin, who has over 3 million views on YouTube through her Giz A Laugh channel, as well as Gearoid Farrelly, fresh from his sell out nationwide tour, star of Republic Of Telly and 2XM Emmanuel Idama. It's topped off nicely with the show everybody is talking about, the one and only Bingo Loco. Rolling into Sunday, we'll see more of the same with Ireland’s Got Talent finalist Sean Hegarty with his whip sharp one liners, along with star of The Savage Eye, Irish Pictorial Weekly and The Panel, one of the best in the business, John Colleary. Joining them is founder of the legendary Comedy Cellar and a star of Father Ted, Kevin Gildea plus Ireland’s oldest and least successful boyband, Totally Wired. From millions of views on YouTube and TV performances on Ireland’s biggest TV shows they are always memorable to watch. Keeping everything in check and running smoothly over the whole weekend will be Ireland’s number one host Andrew Stanley.

Tickets for INDIE18 have been selling quicker than ever, with several tiers for the festival already sold out. There are a limited amount of INDIE VIP Garden tickets still available, offering a secluded chill out area with private bars and entertainment.

Weekend Camping Tickets are currently available on the festival website, www.indiependencefestival.com, with more announcements due over the coming months!

Didn't get to see a whole lot as was working, but Bitch Falcon, King Kong Company, Le Galaxie and Marc O'Reilly were all excellent.

Was at the Sunday and thought it was brilliant.

Aine Cahill, the elation, Le boom and primal scream were the highlights for me.

Brought my kids in for the afternoon and they had a ball. Very family friendly early in the day.
