Independents celebrate fifteen years of collective action at European level.
As IMPALA turns 15, various initiatives are taking place across Europe, including events at industry gatherings such as Reeperbahn Festival, Amsterdam Dance Event and Eurosonic Noorderslag (more information here) as well as special editions of the IMPALA awards. IMPALA's milestones sum up how much has been achieved so far to level the playing field for independent music companies.
