I still don’t get it, explain this to me again?
Answer: Indie 360 is a project by an independent record
company called 3000 Records. We help independent Bands & Artists
get exposure by including 1 song on a Co-Op CD (compilation).
The CDs are distributed free to people in the Music Industry, and
the general public. Being on our Co-Op CD allows you to get your
music heard by 1000’s of listeners, including people who can make
a difference in your music career.
OK, where exactly will these CDs be distributed?
Answer: We send the CDs to locations around the world
including Radio Stations, Magazines, Record Companies, Film &
T.V Production Companies, Street Teams, Record Stores, Music
Conferences, Open Mics, Winners of our CD Giveaway Contest, plus
participating Bands & Artists. To see examples visit www.examples.indie360.com
What about Copyrights?
Answer: Participants will keep all rights to their own music.
Our Terms of Agreement are non-exclusive. That is the best
kind of agreement out there!!! Though recommended, it is not a
requirement to Copyright your music to participate in this Co-Op CD
What happens after I register to reserve my space?
Answer: Once you register, your space on a Co-Op CD
will be reserved. You will have until the final deadline to send in
your music on CD or CD-R, along with your final payment.
Question: What if spaces become full, or not enough Bands
& Artists register by the deadline?
Answer: These CDs are organized by volume number such as
RADIO NOW! (Vol. 1,2,3,4..etc). If spaces on a CD become
full, the Band or Artist will get an immediate space reserved on the
next CD (the next volume number). If not enough Bands & Artists
register, there will be a deadline extension to allow more Bands
& Artists to sign up..
Question: How much time do I get on the CD?
Answer: Songs must be 4 minutes and 20 seconds or
less. Due to limited space, there will be a minimal cost for
songs that go over the time allowed.
Who else is going to be on the CD, and what are the music styles?
Answer: Most music styles are accepted. We feature a wide
variety of music genres on each CD!
Do I need to send in my CD, or demo before I can participate?
Answer: No. We find that those who choose to participate are
serious and enthusiastic Bands & Artists. Most are very
talented, some just plain gifted. We will reserve the right to
refuse any music we do not find appropriate for this project.
Which song should I include on the Co-Op CD?
Answer: It is up to each participating Band & Artist
which song they would like to include. You
should probably use the song that best represents your music.
Consider using a song that you would use on a "single".
Can my song have swearing in it?
Question: What does the
Registration Fee, and Participation fee cover?
Answer: Yes, as long as the swearing is
"bleeped" out or edited. DJs will not play your song if
your song has audible swearing. If you cannot fix this, use a
