Lot’s of exciting things have been going on at Music Gateway this week and we can’t wait to tell you all about them.

Give these a read…

Our bloggers have some great stuff for you this week.

The argument of ‘which is better indie labels or majors’ has been going on for years. We’ve got a great blog discussing this very topic. It’s got a lot of great info about each side, so if you want to pick a side or you’re an artist who needs a bit of guidance, it’s a great read. Take a look here

We’ve got good news if you’re in Canada! Alan Cross and the team have joined forces with Viryl Technologies to bring you a great event this Record Store Day. There’s an impressive list of speakers (and free beer) so it’s worth checking out! You’ll find it here
