VUT Indie Days at the Reeperbahn Festival for the Second Time
We’re delighted that the VUT Indie Days – including the VIA! VUT Indie Awards – hosted by the German Association of Independent Music Companies (VUT), will be a substantial part of the Reeperbahn Festival once again this year, expanding and enriching the festival programme.
The VUT Indie Days, from 21 to 23 September, will include the VUT’s annual general members’ meeting, an Indie Days keynote, plus panels, workshops, talks, and receptions.
Now in its fourth year, the VIA! VUT Indie Awards will be presented on 22 September at Schmidts Tivoli. These awards for independent excellence are the independent music industry’s first and only critics’ awards and are given on the basis of quality and originality – regardless of commercial success. New this year is the awarding of the VIA! Indieaxt (Indie Axe), a prize that recognises outstanding service to the independent music industry and its artists.
