2013 A2IM Libera Awards
On June 20th 2013, the independent music label community converged upon NYC’s Highline Ballroom for A2IM’s second annual Libera Awards (”The LIBBYs”) co-presented by Caroline. With over 400 people representing the independent music industry from around the world and across every imaginable genre, the room was packed with labels, music service providers and coveted LIBBY statuettes, hand-sculpted from wire and wood.
Planning for the 2014 LIBBY Awards are under way. Stay tuned for dates and submission requirements coming soon. To learn more about sponsor/partner opportunities for the 2014 LIBBY Awards contact Louis Joachim (firstname.lastname@example.org).
