Indie-Con returned this year as a hybrid event, with delegates and speakers attending both online and in person at Adelaide’s Freemasons Hall. Building on the success of previous years events, the conference was held over 3 days and saw both leaders and newcomers to the independent music sector come together to discuss a broad range of relevant topics, with some highlights being:
Grants Funding Opportunities which dug into the timeliness of grants, and discussed details like budgets and the strength of supporting docs, and most importantly the places to find grant opportunities.
Right Time, Right Place – Getting hired to compose music for film and TV – which looked at the art of having your music placed in film and tv from the perspective of music supervisors and musicians.
Neighbouring Rights – unpacked how to get paid for your music when it has been broadcast in any territory.
Artists and A&R – discussed how A&R has evolved over the years and the impact of data driven A&R on the industry.
As well as this, journalist Lars Brandle interviewed manager Ant Celestino on the success of Shouse, Tik Tok delivered a talk on how artists can harness the marketing power of the platform, Merlin CEO Jeremy Sirota spoke to Cindy Charles, Head Of Music Licensing and Industry Relations at Twitch, and much more.
For paid delegates who weren’t able to attend or missed out on checking out some of this years panels, they will be available to view online until Friday 19th August.
Maria Amato, CEO of AIR said, “Huge thanks to all our speakers for making this year’s in-person and online conference a great success”
