Welcome To The Indie Collaborative ℠

Indie Collab Mixer Jan 28 2018 New York City
More than 100 of us gathered in NYC before the Grammys on 28 January 2018
We succeed most and our music flourishes best through a collaborative effort. That often means writing/ producing/ performing together, sharing information, attending each others' concerts, turning to each other for business, marketing, and artistic advice, and supporting one another. Our goal is to provide a meaningful and fun networking experience. Each hour will include time for "informal chatting," as well as an opportunity for attendees to formally address the group about who they are, what they do, and what needs they may have.

If you’re an INDIE musician or music industry professional, please JOIN US today and be a part of our mission! Please also join our private Facebook group and follow our twitter pages (social media links are at the bottom of most pages). You must be a member before you can join the Facebook Group. There is NO cost to become a member of the Indie Collaborative, so please join today!

Traveling with Musical Instruments

A vitally important issue with many indie music professionals is traveling by air with their precious musical instruments. We suggest that you print these documents and carry them with you when traveling by air - especially the final ruling. Not all airlines gate people are aware of these new rules!

  • FINAL RULING on air travel with musical instruments - simple version PDF file
