Pick up vinyl and more from some great independent record labels
Vinyl buffs, rejoice: the Independent Label Market is back for another Easter instalment. 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 Fabric, Heavenly Recordings, Fire, Cherry Red, Communion, Fortuna Pop, Heavenly, Hospitality, Shogun Audio and Nonclassical. Crate-digging is thirsty work, so you’ll be glad to hear that the London Brewers’ Market is once again setting up next door. Head over to sample craft beer from London and beyond and have a (hazy) chat to the brewers behind it.
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.
