The annual A2IM Libera Awards honors both independent musicians as well as the teams that support them. Independent music encompasses all genres and styles; independent music is without constraints. It breaks barriers and crashes through glass ceilings. The Libera Awards exists to recognize the powerful voice of the independent sector. Now in its 13th year, the Libera Award is the premier celebration of independent music.
“The Libera Awards show is the biggest night of the year for independent music. An opportunity to celebrate the incredible talent, diversity, creativity, and hard work that takes place throughout the year. And an opportunity for us all to gather in one place and embrace the strength of our community,” says Dr. Richard James Burgess, MBE, President, and CEO of A2IM. “We are thrilled to add three new categories to the 2024 awards, to further shine a spotlight on the depth and breadth of the independent sector. We look forward to seeing and celebrating those nominated in the weeks ahead.”
The Libera Award is produced by the American Association of Independent Music, better known as A2IM, a not-for-profit trade association that represents independent music recording owners. With 800 music companies in our community, A2IM works every day to provide education, opportunities, and community spaces for our members. Most importantly, A2IM advocates for music owners on a policy level to ensure fair compensation for their work. Learn more and join us at a2im.org.
