NOLA bounce artist Big Freedia was named the 2022 Artist Ambassador for Independent Venue Week. “I wouldn’t be here without the independent venue. After performing in local clubs for years, it was the independent venues that were the first to book me to play for audiences beyond New Orleans,” said Freedia in a statement. “Live music is still recovering from a tough few years. We need to support independent venues now more than ever.” Logjam is very excited to have Big Freedia perform at Trombone Shorty’s Voodoo Threauxdown on Friday, July 1st!
KettleHouse Amphitheater and The ELM are two of the over 250 independent venues from all over the country that are set to participate in what is already the largest celebration of its kind in the world. The full schedule for Independent Venue Week 2022 can be found on their website here.

The music industry is a competitive space, especially for independent venues and promoters competing against larger corporations. The past few years have been especially challenging, but thanks to the support of patrons and local communities, independent organizations continue to thrive. Logjam Presents, KettleHouse Amphitheater and The ELM are incredibly grateful to everyone who chooses to support live entertainment in Montana. Thank you for keeping independent venues alive and well.
