We feel very proud to release Independent Venue Week and Independent Venue Community’s newly published Ten Year Impact Report; a legacy of achievements produced and compiled by the widely-respected team Sound Connections.

Published today, the report outlines the growth and evolution of IVW – from partnering with 17 venues in 2014 and surviving the pandemic, to building a globally-recognised community that has now hosted almost 5,000 individual shows and helped sell more than a million tickets, opening new opportunities for artists, audiences and backstage workers.

The report also explores the creation and growth of Independent Venue Community (IVC), an initiative supporting our network of independent venues to innovate by exploring the day-time use of their spaces.

The full report can be downloaded and read HERE.
