Pick up vinyl and more from some great independent record labels.
Vinyl buffs, rejoice: the Independent Label Market is back for its annual summer fair. It’s both a platform for dozens of the UK’s best independent record labels to sell their wares directly to music lovers and a chance for punters to get hold of some of the freshest LPs, CDs, tapes and merchandise, and hang out with the ever-friendly label staff and musicians who man the stalls.
Labels taking part this time around include Bella Union, Hyperdub, Heavenly, Shogun Audio, XL and Brainfeeder – and if all that leaves you thirsty, the London Brewers’ Market will be set up right next door, offering liquid refreshment from some of London’s best independent breweries.
The market opens at 11am, so it’s best to arrive early if you want to take your pick of the exclusive items and beat the crowds (yes, there will be crowds). Set your alarm and bring a tote bag and plenty of cash: you’ll find plenty of vinyl treasure here.
