We are excited to announce our involvement in this year’s 3rd annual AIM Independent Music Awards, held in London on September 3rd, 2013. As a member of the Association of Independent Music, The Orchard has always appreciated the goals and intentions of AIM to support and represent the independent music sector.
We look forward to this year’s awards ceremony which will recognize outstanding achievements and individuals from within our indie music family.
