The A2IM Libera Awards is one of the largest annual celebrations in the independent music sector. On Thursday, June 18, the Libera Awards celebrated their 10th year of honoring independent music releases, artists, and companies.
This year’s award show was streamed exclusively on the official A2IM YouTube Channel. While hosted virtually, the live chat room still allowed viewers and nominees to cheer each other on while providing some semblance of community and togetherness. The live streamed show included performances from some of the biggest artists in indie music, as well as thoughtful acceptance speeches and toasts.
Congratulations to our distributed artists, labels, and partners who received both nominations and an iconic Libera Award this year! Find a full list of the 2021 Libera Award winners here and The Orchard distributed winners below.
