Sounds Australia, AIR and the PPCA are now seeking expressions of interest from Australian independent labels to take part in an Australian delegation to attend Indie Week 2022 in New York City, an independent label focused conference hosted by A2IM (American Association of Independent Music) from June 13-16 2022 at New York Law School.

A2IM Indie Week is a four-day international conference and networking event aimed at maximizing the global impact of Independent music. Featuring keynotes, panels, exclusive networking sessions, and more, A2IM Indie Week has historically drawn an attendance of over 1200 participants from over 30 countries. Build your network and join the conversation.

Indie Week is a member-only conference for record labels and service providers with a strong focus on the exploitation of master recordings, licensing, networking and digital. AIR & Sounds Australia have led Australian delegations to Indie Week since 2013 and we have again been extended an invitation to lead an Australian delegation to Indie Week in 2022.

Sounds Australia will be covering registration costs – valued at $579.99 USD.

Due to limited capacity, we ask all interested parties to show an expression of interest by filling out this survey BY WEDNESDAY 20TH APRIL 2022 – it shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to complete.
