South Australia will once again host the AIR Awards and Indie-Con Conference this July, bringing together the best independent musicians and indie businesses and professionals.
With the AIR Awards due to be held at the Adelaide Queens Theatre on July 27 and Indie-Con Conference on July 26 and 27 at The Hindley, Adelaide can expect to see a few big names to fly into the city.
Australian Independent Record Labels Association's General Manager Maria Amato said last year's awards were the best AIR Awards to date - the three year agreement with the South Australian Government being key to this.
"It demonstrates that the South Australian Government understand how important the arts are [to] the Australian economy and to the cultural enrichment of society – what better place to hold our national events than the UNESCO city of Music," Amato said.
Independent music is so important to the Australian music industry because it allows artists to create the music they love, on their own terms. Artists get to go about on their own global adventures and truly make their musical careers their own creative production.
