A2IM has announced the 2018 dates for two of indie music's signature events. A2IM Indie Week will take in New York City place from June 18 - 21, 2018. The Libera Awards, which honor the best in independent music, will be held on June 21.
Indie Week 2018 will feature a four-day lineup of talks, workshops, and panels by music industry leaders. The event will be held at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural and Educational Center.
At the culmination of Indie Week, the Libera Awards brings together the luminaries of the independent music world. Held at NYC’s PlayStation Theater, the Awards provide members of the community the opportunity to honor peers and recognize all they have achieved over the previous year. Nominees will include artists and labels from across the musical spectrum in addition to organizations that have supported independent music around the world.
Last year’s Indie Week was a huge success, with speakers such as former Pandora CEO and Founder Tim Westergren. The 2017 Libera Awards honored independent visionaries such as Ani DiFranco and Nick Lowe, and were capped off with a stellar performance by the legendary Talib Kweli. A2IM plans for this year’s Indie Week and Libera Awards to be its most exciting and well-attended events yet.
