about

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, Indie Week has historically drawn an attendance of over 1200 participants from over 30 countries.

In response to COVID-19, we took Indie Week online in 2020 and 2021. Now we’re thrilled to announce that Indie Week 2022 will be in-person! For those still uncertain about travel, a virtual option will also be available.

The long awaited return to in-person #A2IMIndieWeek is finally upon us! June 13-16,2022, join us for 4 days of networking sessions, panel discussions, meet and greets with A2IM board and staff, lounge hangs (presented by SoundExchange), and plenty of happy hours 😉. Held at the New York Law School, participants will walk away with a comprehensive snapshot of the indie music industry today, and strengthened relationships within the community. A2IM Members get access to steeply discounted tickets!
