MEI (the Independent Labels Meeting) is the most important event dedicated to the new Italian indie music scene. It is a two-day-long series of concerts, musical and literary shows, meetings and exhibits, as well as a display area for the professional workers of the music industry.
The aim of the event is to support, promote and foster the growth and distribution of an indie and emerging music culture, in order to fight the process of depersonalisation which is currently going on in the music industry. We do it by offering an intense experience during the two days, which means: around three hundred showcases and concerts and hundreds of debates, meetings and book launches. Throughout the event, music is in the spotlight.
