Indie Week is an independent music festival founded in Toronto in 2003. After 6 years of great success in Ireland, Indie Week Europe will now see an expansion in 2015 with Manchester, UK as its new host city. 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.
