A big thank you to all those Independent Venue’s that made IVW amazing!

That’s it – the first Independent Venue Week came to a close last night after an amazing 6 days of gigs all around the UK.

A HUGE thank you to all those people who helped make it happen including all of the participating venues and their dedicated staff, promoters, bands and everyone who went down to their local venue and had a blast.

Special thanks go to PRS for Music, Colin Greenwood, Steve Lamacq and everyone at 6 Music, Lyndsey Boggis and everyone at BBC Introducing, Domino Records, 360 Club, Generic Greeting, Laura and Dresden at Invader, Jack Daniels, The Musicians Union, Marshall Amps, UK Music and Hardwick & Morris.

Give us a week or two to catch our breath and gather our collective thoughts and we’ll be back starting to plan year 2.

If you went to any of the gigs, share your pictures and stories on our Facebook and Twitter pages. If you’re a venue and would like to be part of IVW15, drop us an email and we’ll be in touch.

Thanks again everyone – don’t stop supporting your local independent venues!

Sybil and Joe
