For the last time ever, QUT’s Independent Music Project is on the hunt for 72 of South East Queensland’s best artists and songwriters to record 100 Songs in 100 hours. The 2015 Indie 100 will be the final chance for artists to participate in what has become known as a groundbreaking industry initiative.

Recording at QUT’s iconic Gasworks Studio in Newstead, selected artists are given the opportunity to work with some of the best producers in South East Queensland, including ARIA award-winner Lachlan (Magoo) Gould.

QUT Professor of Music Phil Graham said that the project offered artists the opportunity to gain a unique edge in a fiercely competitive industry.

“In previous years we have received more than 400 applications. As this will be the Indie 100’s last year, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was our biggest year yet.”

“The Indie 100 project is a great chance for emerging artists to get experience recording in first-class facilities with some of the best in the business.”

“After the intensive recording week, artists have their music presented to a panel of industry representatives who will select tracks for the final compilation album.”

Selected artists may also be eligible to apply in the new QUT Master of Fine Arts (Music Industry Professions) program.

Songs from the event will be sent for broadcast consideration to local, national, and international radio stations.

Previous artists who have enjoyed success after performing in the Indie 100 include Jungle Giants, Sahara Beck, Michelle Xen, Art of Sleeping, The Belligerents, Hannah Rosa and Grand Pavilion.

Applications are now open and will close at midnight on Tuesday 7 April.


The recording will take place from Sunday 24 May to Friday 29 May.
