Floating Points, Kode9 and more label heads expected to man stalls at the ever-popular record fair.

It sounds like the simplest of formulas, but who doesn’t like vinyl and beer? Back again after what seems like ages, Independent Label Market will once again team up with London Brewers’ Market, for an afternoon of boozy record buying and market-style trading.

If you’ve been paying attention for the last few years, you’ll know all this, but for the uninitiated, this is what you can expect: Unlike your average record fair, Independent Label Market prides itself of inviting the label owners themselves down to get their hands dirty and sell records directly to the punters, and this year is no different with the likes of Floating Points (Eglo), Kode9 (Hyperdub) and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard (Greco-Roman) taking charge of the money box at their respective stalls.

Other high profile attendees expected include The Invisible, Women’s Hour, Bo Ningen and Matt Berry, while a full day of DJs are being laid on to soundtrack the afternoon, including Bullion, Full Nelson and Reginald Omas Mamode IVth.

Another thing to look out for will be the plethora of limited editions, rare records and collectors’ items that are wheeled out for sale exclusively at the market. Highlights this time round undoubtedly include a whole bunch of rarities from the Beggars Arkives, with rare copies of Adele’s debut single ‘Hometown Glory’. Other items of note include signed Metronomy goodies and exclusives from Wild Beasts, Pixies and countless others. If that wasn’t enough, try and tell me you don’t want a Ninja Tune lighter, a Warp keyring or a Fire records tankard.

And then there’s the beer, but we’ll leave that for you to discover yourselves. You can see a full list of labels attending below, and find out more about the event from the Facebook page. For a teatse of what to expect check out our photos from last year’s sweltering summer bonanza here.

Independent Label Market is open 11am until 6pm at London’s Old Spitalfields Market this Saturday, 12th July.
