Independent Venue Week returns for its third year at the beginning of next year, taking place from Monday 25th to Sunday 31st January. The ambassador for Independent Venue Week 2016 will be Wolf Alice, who take over from this year's ambassador, Frank Turner.

Wolf Alice gave a statement about their appointment:

"We are proud to be ambassadors of this year's Independent Venue Week and ask for peoples support so these kind of unique, intimate and sweaty shows continue for everyone to enjoy," says the band. "Venues that we started off playing along with so many other bands have created some of our funnest memories to date. We'd love for that to continue for us and for other bands, please show your support."

Boiler Room, amongst others, seem to be happy with the choice, as they tweeted:
