The 22nd Anniversary of the Jim Beam INDIES will take place June 8, 2023 at History in Toronto, Ontario with a exclusive concert set by Charlotte Cardin.

The Jim Beam INDIES are a celebration of new music and the artists and teams who inspire the independent spirit, both nationally and internationally.

The INDIES will include award presentations, and dynamic performances by select nominees. The 2023 Jim Beam National Talent Search Winner will open the 22nd Jim Beam INDIES, while Charlotte Cardin will close out the evening with a full set. Public on sale will be Friday, March 10 at 10 am ET at Ticketmaster. 

Charlotte Cardin won VIDEO OF THE YEAR at the 2022 Jim Beam INDIES for “Anyone Who Loves Me”, and FRANCOPHONE ARTIST/GROUP OR DUO OF THE YEAR at the 2021 Jim Beam INDIES for “Passive Aggressive”.

Amassing over 272 million combined global streams and attracting acclaim from Harper`s BAZAAR, The FADER, Flaunt, NYLON, PAPER, W Magazine, Interview, Pigeons & Planes, and more, Charlotte Cardin takes flight out of flames on her 2021 full-length debut, Phoenix. Cardin`s first record held steady at #1 on the Billboard Canadian Albums Chart for multiple weeks and made the artist the most nominated artist at the 2022 JUNO Awards, collecting six nominations total. In addition to being long listed for the 2021 Polaris Prize, Phoenix won Anglophone Album of the Year at ADISQ 2021 and was certified Platinum in Canada within a year from its release. Back in 2017, Cardin`s first two breakthrough EPs, Big Boy and Main Girl had sparked a whirlwind two-year journey around the globe - opening for Nick Murphy and BØRNS, selling out headline shows on multiple continents and gracing the stage of Bonnaroo, and Festival d`Été de Québec, as a special guest of Sting and Peter Gabriel. In the fall of 2021, Cardin headlined the return of Osheaga in her hometown of Montreal. The artist then went on to sell-out her first headlining Canadian tour, selling over 47K tickets coast to coast, plus selling out nights at The Roxy in Los Angeles and New York`s Music Hall of Williamsburg.
