Indie Week is an independent music festival founded in Toronto in 2003. After 6 years of great success in Ireland, Indie Week Europe moved to Manchester, UK as its new host city in 2015. The first year saw success by discovering Swedish/Belgium act Victoria + Jean who came to Indie Week Canada in October 2015 and as a result were signed to an international record deal with Cadence Music.

 Indie Week Europe is a one of a kind experience. Emerging artists perform in front of the music industry elite for a chance to win the “Best of the Fest”, and the grand prize of a trip to Toronto to headline Indie Week Canada 2015. Indie Week Europe also hosts a conference called Indie101, featuring panels in social media, tech, music and more, plus industry mixers, after show parties and demo listening sessions.
