Indie Week is the â€œalternativeâ€ music festival â€“ itâ€™s about independent artists. As an artist-friendly festival, each act is listened to in the selection process and chosen on their musical merits. This means the acts arenâ€™t lost in a giant band stew. Itâ€™s about the music, not the competition. Itâ€™s about giving the underdog a chance. Itâ€™s about networking, learning, and sharing ideas. Itâ€™s about getting a leg up in the near impossible landscape of the music business.
