Association Of Independent Music announces ticket details for 2018’s Indie-Con event which returns to London’s Glaziers Hall on 8 February
That’s right folks, 8 February is the date for your spanking new year diaries. On that date, Association Of Independent Music (AIM) will return with their popular Indie-Con event, in conjunction with Disc Manufacturing Services (DMS Vinyl).
Last year’s event was popular, selling out London’s Glaziers Hall, which saw 450 independent music professionals attend. And this year promises to be just as successful. So, what is Indie-Con? Indie-Con is a conference that focuses on the business needs of independent record labels and self-releasing artists. Tickets are open to the public and the sessions could prove useful to any DIY artists and future business owners.
For artists, the sessions cover topics relating to A&R in the digital age, the positives of being backed by a record label and getting your music played on the radio. While prospective entrepreneurs can learn about growing a small record label in the global market – using Secret City Records as a case study – and monetising the Australian and New Zealand markets.
A vast selection of guest speakers will be giving talks. People like Vidhi Gandhi, an A&R manager at Ninja Tune; Jane Third, chief creative officer at PIAS; Jon Hillcock, presenter on BBC 6Music; and Natalie Baker, owner of Hot Salvation Records, are some of the speakers confirmed so far.
Sam Duckworth of Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly wrote on Twitter: “Pop this in your diary. Always one of the most useful and interesting days of the year if you work in any aspect of the music industry.”
Ticket prices start at £63 for AIM members and £132 for non-members. This is an exclusive early bird price which is available until 20 December.
