We would like to invite you to attend the event virtually and would appreciate your consideration for interview opportunities with any of the performing artists and award recipients.

The show will be open to the public as a live stream, offering fans an evening of spectacular independent music performances with no ticket purchase required. It will also function as a fundraiser for artists, musicians, crew, and small labels experiencing financial difficulties due to the coronavirus crisis.

They include Grammy winning hip-hop icon Wyclef Jean, legendary hip-hop duo Shabazz Palaces, Colombian indie rockers Salt Cathedral, masked country music sensation Orville Peck, Grammy winners Tinariwen, eclectic folk rockers Y La Bamba, violinist and vocalist Sudan Archives, and singer/songwriter Julia Jacklin. Punk rock pioneer Alejandro Escovedo and electronic music maestro Suzanne Ciani will perform; in addition, both of these musical titans will be honored with this year’s Independent Icon Award. This year’s Awards will also feature special screenings of two recorded performances: one by indie folk band and 2020 Grammy nominees Big Thief, as well as British rockers IDLES, recorded live at Le Bataclan in Paris.
