HMUK are proud to be an official partner for this year’s Independent Venue Week (IVW), which takes place from Monday 23 to Sunday 29 January.
IVW celebrate the spirit of independence and culture of live music. It is a 7 day celebration of small music venues across the UK and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them. These venues give artists their first experience of playing live in front of an audience and for fans, somewhere to get up close to artists that one day, may well be playing stadiums and festival main stages.
We share the belief that these venues are the backbone of the live music scene and are essential to the careers of musicians. As a charity that exists to support musicians at every stage of their lives we are delighted to support independent venues enabling musician’s talent to shine and thrive. Venues present unique learning and development opportunities for musicians and enable them to connect with their fans on a completely different level.
As part of this new partnership HMUK will support Charlatans frontman and IVW 2017 ambassador, Tim Burgess, series of gigs. Burgess has curated and will be DJing as part of his Tim Peaks IVW tour. Tim Peaks is the coffee and gigs brand that Burgess takes to festivals and as part of this mini tour he has picked 3 artists to headline their home towns.
The Tim Peaks gigs are as follows:
