10 Indie Artists You Need to Follow on Instagram Now

If bands only use Instagram for promotion, what’s the point? It’s already annoying to see ads on Instagram, so why follow a band that’s just marketing themselves?

Sure, as a fan it’s helpful to see posts with tour dates and new merch deals and whatnot, but if that’s all the artists have got going on there, it’s boring. That’s what a link in bio is for—make a post about ticket sales and link out to it. Fans really follow bands on Instagram to get to know the members. What are they like? Are they funny? Do they prank each other? What do they do when they’re not playing music?

Well, these indie bands let their personalities shine through their Instagrams. You’re going to fall in love with these musicians because they can rock your socks off and show you a good time on social media.

Don’t forget to click follow!

Music Band

It’s obvious just how serious these Nashville boys take their social media presence by how many Music Band accounts they’ve created (@truemusicband@music__band, @music_band, @music_band_prebus). They’re all good, but I’d say their stories are the best part.
