A2IM Libera Awards 2018

June 21, 2018

On Thursday, June 21, 2018 members of the Independent community will gather at NYC’s PlayStation Theater to toast the year’s biggest Independent success stories as voted on by their peers across the U.S. independent music community. This year’s A2IM Libera Awards will be hosted by NYC comedian, Kate Wolff!

The remarkable scope of the independent music world is on display at A2IM’s Libera Awards presented by SoundExchange in partnership with BuzzAngle with a special celebration of Merlin’s 10 Year Anniversary. The Liberas celebrate the range of the thriving indie world, which features diverse genres, labels big and small, and from around the globe. Created by and for the Independent label community, the Libera Awards – name adapted from the Latin word for freedom – is the capstone of A2IM’s Indie Week in New York City.

The 2018 Libera Awards are hosted by NYC Comedian Kate Wolff. You can see the full list of nominees here:
