Indie is independant. It used to mean a band on an independant label that play mostly for fun with a unique sound. Not like all these modern "Indie" bands.

I understand it means independant but what the difference between beeing on an indie label or a major label.

i was reading on wikipedia and it said one of the differences is indie bands pay for the shows. like, they have to book the place, provide beer and snacks, and their way of transportation. thats why if youve ever been to an indie show it sucked, cause theyre all poor and emo. atleast oasis who is indie is stinkin rich so it wouldnt matter, major label or not. with major labels, theyll bite you on the ass later, because they may pay for the whole tour, but your in debt to them, so if they spent 5 mill, and you got 7 mill from record sales then youd be down to 2 mill

An indie label has far less money to spend on promoting a band, whereas a major label has huge resources so is able to spend loads on advertising and so on.

For a band, an indie label will generally give more freedom to experiment, and a major is looking for something to appeal to a large audience to sell more records so will want something more mainstream.

All of this may be true but the REAL difference is that indie labels are privately owned whereas major labels are run by corporations.
