CELEBRATING THE SPIRIT OF INDEPENDENCE & CULTURE OF LIVE MUSIC
Mon July 9 – Sun July 15 2018
Independent Venue Week is a seven-day celebration of small music venues and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them, week in, week out.
Independent Venue Week is launching in the US from July 9–15, 2018. After the fifth successful UK edition, Independent Venue Week brings together venues, rising and established artists, promoters, labels, media, and tastemakers to create a now international series of gigs. This is a unique live music project running for seven days across the United States but with a completely local feel.
These venues continue to give artists the early experience of playing live in front of an audience. For fans, these venues are somewhere to get up close to artists that, one day, may well be playing stadiums. And for the working industry, these are the places where new talent gets discovered and behind-the-scenes careers are fostered.
Independent venues are the backbone of the live music scene and Independent Venue Week wants to recognize all that they have done to create some of the most memorable nights of the past, so they can continue to do the same in the future.
