Pollstar: HI-FI Indianapolis Named to Independent Venue Week List


Independent Venue Week is returning for its second US edition July 8 – 14th, and we’re repping for the Hoosier state in a big way.

Mirroring the success of Record Store Day, Sybil Bill first founded Indie Venues Week as an initiative in the UK six years ago. Last year, the event crossed the Atlantic, and 20 venues were chosen to be highlighted throughout the US, and this year the event is even bigger with 30 venues named as ambassador locations.

We’re proud that the HI-FI stands out as a great example of an indie venue, and we’re especially proud to hold multiple spaces where independent artists can share their talents. Here’s who we’re sharing the honor with:
