Dart Music International (DMI) is an Austin-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works with small indie/rock/pop bands from around the world. We make it possible for them to come to Austin and our region by decreasing costs on things like visas, logistics, and other services while increasing opportunities to earn some income through paying gigs and merchandise sales.
The point of doing this is to help people here - students, young professionals, regular working folks like us - have the opportunity to experience and interact with our peers from other countries & cultures. Rock/pop music as that common ground we all share that opens the door to learn more about these "foreign" cultures.
At Dart Music International we have been fortunate to work with some of the most exciting and talented bands on the planet. But don't just take our word for it. Read about the international awards they are winning and the glowing reviews our bands are receiving from such sources as NME, Rolling Stone, and Blurt on our Press Page.
