The National Independent Venue Association launched in April in efforts to secure financial support to preserve the national ecosystem of independent venues and promoters.

What is NIVA?

  • We are a group of nearly 2,000 independent venues in 50 states that are banding together to ask Washington for targeted legislation to help us survive.

  • We were the first to close. We will be the last to open.

  • We are 100% shut down for an indefinite period of time.

  • We have zero revenue.

  • We are small businesses who are in danger.

How You can Help?

Head to and fill out the form, it literally takes less than a minute. By entering your State/Zip code it will automatically find the contacts for three State Representatives and once you hit submit it will email them on your behalf. Super quick and super easy!
