U.S. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, Spotify’s Marian Lee Dicus and Jeremy Erlich and VP Record’s Patricia ‘Miss Pat’ Chin will be keynotes at A2IM’s Indie Week, which will be taking place virtually from June 14 through June 17. Indie Week will feature four days of keynotes, workshops, panels, and international networking opportunities.
According to the announcement, the speakers “are poised to offer perspectives on the organization’s three key pillars — advocacy, education, and community — in discussions that span across the key role that streaming plays for artists, the struggles faced by creatives over the past year due to the pandemic, diversity in independent music, and how support from legislators is essential in empowering and protecting independents.”
