Say It Records and Champ Records present the fourth annual San Diego Indie Music Fest - the nation's first and only exclusively independent music festival. San Diego Indie Music Fest (SDIMF) is a celebration and revelation of the ever-growing and increasingly powerful indie music and film happening throughout the country.

The fourth annual event will be held on March 29, 2008 from noon to midnight and will feature over 60 artists on 6 stages. Artists will include everything from local buzz-makers to national indie icons and only Independent artists (not signed to a major label) are eligible to play at SDIMF. Diversity reigns at this year's festival, with music ranging from rock to pop, R&B to hip-hop, salsa, spoken word, folk and more – all genres are not only welcomed but encouraged. This year’s submissions will be exclusively through Sonicbids. There may be compensation available for some artists.

Debuting last year was SDIMF's indpendent film theatre which showcased a wide array of outstanding documentaries and short films, followed by discussion panels and more. All independent filmmakers are also encouraged to submit!

Past headliners have included indie icons Veruca Salt, Jonatha Brooke, Fishbone, Michelle Shocked, Scissors For Lefty, Heather Grody (The Murmurs), and World renowned double-violinist, Gingger Shankar. Potential headliners for 2008 include Michael Franti & Spearhead, and Beth Hart, .

The music is emphasized as a representation of why diversity is not simply to be 'tolerated' but rather to be celebrated as the crux of that which is remarkable in our community, and that which is crucial to a healthy, vibrant city where people of all types are important, recognized and valued.

Debuting in 2004, SDIMF made history as the only event of its kind in the entire country, dedicated to celebrating and advocating Indie music, art, business, culture and thought. Nearly tripling in size in its sophomore year in Nov. ’05 with over 2500 in attendance, and tripling again in '07, SDIMF has become California's hottest and youngest event to grow this exponentially.
