A simple look into where the popularity of indie rock music reigns supreme.
As part of creating our recent Indie Rock Music Monitor, we not only tracked every website in the world which covered a selection of popular indie rock releases from 2015/16*, but we also learned the location of each of these sites.
When we plot the locations of all 530+ sites on a map, it becomes clear which countries love indie rock music. If you’re looking for new indie music fans, these 10 countries are a great place to start.
