Indie-Con, a music conference offering insights into the latest innovations and technological advancements in products, services and strategies available to the independent music sector, will debut in Australia in Adelaide in July.
Notable speakers for the inaugural event include Portia Sabin (Kill Rock Stars/Future of What), Richard James Burgess (A2IM), Paul Pacifico (AIM), George Howard (Berklee/Forbes), Amy Dietz (InGrooves), Merida Sussex (Stolen Recordings/Paradse Motel) Jen Cloher (Milk Records) and Briggs (Bad Apples/A.B. Original), with Sebastian Chase (MGM) offering the Opening Keynote.
Indie-Con has been confirmed to be held for the next three years with support from the South Australian government.
Conference programmer Stu Watters comments “Indie-Con Australia will feature unrivalled networking opportunities, workshops, panels, presentations and interviews with key industry players. One of the things that makes the independent sector truly appealing is that the business models are all quite diverse and they don’t fit a mould, they are cutting their own track along the way and this conference is all about sharing those stories.
The event will coincide with the AIR Awards first South Australian event after leaving Melbourne.
AIR members will receive invitations to attend Indie-Con Australia, with a limited number of tickets available for sale to non-members from July 6th, 2017 via www.air.org.au/indie-con-australia – book early to avoid disappointment!
