Independent Venue Week will return for its third year in January, hosting live shows in 120 venues around the country from 25-31 Jan. Organisers have also announced Wolf Alice as 2016 ambassadors, following on from Frank Turner last year and Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood in 2014.

“We are proud to be ambassadors of this year’s Independent Venue Week and ask for people’s support so that these kinds of unique, intimate and sweaty shows continue for everyone to enjoy”, said the band. “Venues that we started off playing, along with so many other bands, have created some of our funniest memories to date. We’d love for that to continue for us and for other bands, please show your support”.

IVW founder Sybil Bell added: “It’s great to be back again already – this third year is our most exciting yet. Wolf Alice have had an incredible year playing so many of the venues we are working with, culminating in their sell out show at Brixton Academy. That’s the kind of journey bands go on and we’re so chuffed to have them as our ambassadors this year”.

Among the artists performing as part of next year’s IVW event are Everything Everything, Matthew E White, Mallory Knox, Misty Miller, Eliza And The Bear, Georgia, Get Inuit and Edwyn Collins.
