Act of the Month Events

Act of the Month EventsTake part in our Act of the Month Events as an artist, band, record label, radio station, blogger or judge!

A couple of years ago we ran our Act of the Month events and only stopped doing so because of the amount of work it involved. We are trying it again in the hopes we can make the process for A&R easier. We are inviting indie labels and bloggers to suggest talent, because it should be a great help!


To qualify for the events as an artist:

  1. Be an independent act recording songs with lyrics
  2. Have professional looking website, images, photos and album covers
  3. A decent social media following

You can also submit music and your story for other features here at Indie Music Bus via Submit Music Links and Your Story
