AIR (Australian Independent Record Labels Association), SOUNDS AUSTRALIA and PPCA
(Phonographic Performance Company of Australia) are proud to announce that they will again
team up to facilitate and lead a delegation of Australian independent labels to Indie Week, the
annual conference held by A2IM (American Association of Independent Music).
Indie Week is an invitation only conference for independent record labels and service
providers with a strong focus on recordings, licensing and digital. In 2015, over 850 independent
music label-related executives from 15 countries and 24 states attended Indie Week, bringing the
global independent community together for a series of world class panels, one-on-one networking
and associated events, such as the A2IM Libera Awards and Reeperbahn Festival showcase.
AIR & SOUNDS AUSTRALIA have led Australian delegations to Indie Week since 2013 and this year,
due to the quality of applicants, have increased the size of the delegation.
Labels attending in 2016 are:
Barely Dressed Records
Cooking Vinyl Australia
Hillsong Music Australia
Onelove Recording Australia
Rice Is Nice Records
The A&R Dept
Zero Through Nine
After attending Indie Week in 2015, Steve Cross, co-founder of Remote Control, said, “It was great
to catch up with so many people who are committed to independent music and discuss the
challenges and opportunities we are all experiencing”.
AIR CEO, Dan Nevin, adds “Indie Week is a key global event for independent labels, presenting
significant opportunities for labels to extend their international networks and learn from global
insights, ultimately assisting labels to develop their businesses in line with international peers”.
Indie Week will take place at NY Marriott East Side in New York City from 13th-17th June 2016.
