People and stories from behind the scenes of independent music
Welcome to the WeGotTickets INDIE50, a new award recognising those that make the beautiful madness that is the UK’s independent scene. After 15 years in live music, we’ve seen first-hand the effect one person can have on a local scene, and with the INDIE50 we shine a light on fifty such people that our judges selected from the public’s nominations.
This vital, diverse, group of pros and passionate behind-the-scene-ers were then shot and interviewed by photographer Dan Wilton and journalist Josh Jones, who travelled from Totnes to Glasgow and everywhere in between on their journey to capture the INDIE50.
Their results have been compiled into an exhibition by Dan, ‘Don’t Be A Dick’, being held at 71a Gallery in Shoreditch from 1st – 8th September 2016, and a special zine of the same name containing images and extracts from Josh’s interviews.
Check back here from 1st September to see the images and interviews with each of the INDIE50.
