Friends Of AIR

In a global business environment where multi-national companies manouvre to 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 behind and provide support to the Australian independent sector. It also puts you and your company in front of and in contact with AIR’s many 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.
