Say It Records and Durga Sound present the eighth annual San Diego IndieFest - the first festival of its kind in the nation that focuses exclusively on independent music, film, art and thought. Expecting to bring in 10,000 attendees, San Diego IndieFest is an on-going celebration and revelation of the ever-growing and increasingly powerful world of indie music, film and culture. Twenty slots are reserved for Sonicbids artists, though the Promoter may double that.

Past music headliners have included indie icons like Metric, Semi Precious Weapons, Far, Nappy Roots, Juliette Lewis, Beth Hart, We Are Scientists, and many more.

The event takes place from noon to midnight and will feature over 50 artists on multiple stages. Artists will include everything from local buzz-makers to national and/or international indie icons. Only Independent artists (not signed to a major label) are eligible to play at San Diego IndieFest, and ALL GENRES (sans cover bands) are not only welcomed, but enthusiastically encouraged to participate.

San Diego IndieFest’s most exciting headliners yet will be featured at their big 8-year birthday next August 2013.

San Diego IndieFest is a heart-project, created and produced by a San Diego-based artist collective. Their volunteer-based staff is very small and works year 'round to keep this powerful event alive. As full-time artists themselves, the San Diego IndieFest production staff understands that it can be frustrating not to get a personal letter back as to why you or your band was or was not selected. Because there are so few people in their office, and because they receive well over 1000 submissions every year, it's simply impossible for them to write each of you individually with the myriad of other tasks heaping on their plates to keep IndieFest alive and thriving. They do, however, review each submission thoroughly and with the utmost respect.
