The Vinyl Factory to join a who’s who of independent labels setting up shop at London’s forth Independent Label Market.
Following successful outings in LA and Toronto, ILM will return to London to host over 50 of the UK’s most interesting and important record labels. The connoisseurs’ Record Store Day, ILM has grown year on year since it began in 2011 to become an invaluable meeting point for the independent industry with labels flogging their products side-by-side directly to the public.
Supported by the Association of Independent Music, the labels descending on London’s Old Spitalfield’s Market will be joined by stalls from East London Printmakers, the UK Poster Association and hi-end stereo company Rega, while The Quietus will be curating a selection of their favourite micro-labels.
This year The Vinyl Factory will also be joining the fray for the event on Saturday 13th July with our own stall of special releases and publications, alongside other newcomers 4AD, Huntley & Palmers and Matador. The other labels announced so far include:
Caught By The River
Full Time Hobby
Huntley & Palmers
Killing Moon Ltd
Laissez Faire Club
Les Disques du Crépuscule
Mais Um Discos
No Pain In Pop
Song By Toad
Upset The Rhythm
Partnering with East End Live festival, a new one-day London music event that is part of the East End Film Festival, this year’s market will be followed by performances from Toy, Wet Nuns, Charles De Goal and many more.
