The conference — Indie101 — sets a different kind of stage, allowing a global platform for attendees to both discuss and soak up new knowledge on the bustling and evolving future of the music business. These insightful, informative panels, demo listening sessions, mentorships, and more will be led by some of the most inspiring names in the music, film, and tech industries.

Kickoff Mixer
Indie Week kicks off with bands, beer from Hop City Brewing Co., cocktails by Jack Daniel’s, food, and more on Tuesday, November 7 at The Hideout. Last year over 400 VIPs, delegates, film makers, and esteemed artists mixed and mingled while enjoying cocktails provided by Jack Daniel’s and our other event sponsors.

“No one should have to suffer doing what they love to do.” — Indie Week 2017
Friday, November 10 at The Nest marks a special new addition to Indie Week and Indie 101 in the form of Health & Wellness Day. Having started as just a single panel in 2016, the overwhelming response inspired Indie Week to devote an entire day to advocate, educate, inspire, and support optimal health and well-being for everyone in the industry. 
Health & Wellness Day will feature a keynote address from Chuck Randall (Alice in Chains’ and The Cult’s tour manager), as well as guest speakers Martin Atkins (Nine Inch Nails, Public Image Ltd.) and Marky Ray (former tour manager for Nine Inch Nails). Yoga, diet, healthy eating, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle on tour will be on the docket, as well as resources, support, focus, and decreasing social stigma on the mental health, addictions, and general wellness hurdles that often arise within the music community. 
2017 is Indie Week’s biggest and best year yet with more attendees and media, this is the event to be at!
