Expressions of Interest
AIR, Sounds Australia and PPCA are now seeking expressions of interest from Australian independent labels to take part in an Australian delegation to attend Indie Week 2018, an independent label focused conference hosted by A2IM (American Association of Independent Music) from June 18-21 at The Clemente in New York City.
AIR & Sounds Australia have led Australian delegations to Indie Week since 2013 and have again been extended an invitation to lead an Australian delegation to Indie Week in 2018.
Sounds Australia will be covering registration costs for Indie Week and will also cover the registration cost for approved Indie Week attendees who also wish to attend SYNC SUMMIT, taking place on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd June in NYC.
Due to limited capacity, AIR members interested in attending are asked to complete a short survey to apply – APPLICATIONS CLOSE 5PM FEBRUARY 16TH, 2018.
Indie Week 2018 will be held in New York City from Mon 18th to Thurs 21st June 2018
Sync Summit will be held in New York City from Friday 22nd – Saturday 23rd June 2018
SOUNDS AUSTRALIA’S sponsorship will cover conference registration for both events, a ticket to The Libera Awards, as well as participation in panel discussions and one-on-one networking sessions.
- Australian attendees are responsible for booking and funding all flights, transfers and accommodation themselves.
To apply a label must be a member of AIR
Due to limited capacity and the small number of invitations, all attending Australian labels must have a catalogue of at least five albums and represent the music of at least three artists. It is expected that they are digitally pro-active and are doing business internationally.
