The Australian independent music sector represents a significant number of artists and labels. AIR’s primary purpose is to foster an increasing marketplace for Australian independent music and assist in the long-term development, growth and success of Australia’s independent sector.
In a global business environment where multi-national companies control an overwhelming percentage of the market, the independent sector needs all the support it can get. Our Friends of AIR program allows you to get involved and provide support and be part of the independent music community. It also puts you and your company in front of and in contact with AIR’s members.
All of our valued Friends Of AIR below are already providing great support and services for AIR and the Australian independent music sector as a whole.
If you’re keen to get involved or know more, please contact our Membership & Operations Manager, Jesse Lubitz at Jesse@air.org.au
