Over 100 independent labels hosting stalls at first easter Independent Label Market

Independent Label Market is delighted to introduce a third market to the London calendar in 2015. The first of which will be the debut Easter edition returning to Old Spitalfields Market on Saturday 28th March. Once again, Independent Label Market will be supported by AIM – the Association of Independent Music.

We are very excited to be welcoming a number of new labels set to make their market debuts. Amongst these we have Blang, Church, Gare Du Nord, Foom, Mr Bongo, Night Slugs, Pressure Sounds, Route One, Rudimentary, Text, Touchin’ Bass, Aperture and Wild Sound. As always we are delighted to have a number of our regular traders back, including Warp, Domino, Heavenly, Transgressive, Brownswood, Freerange, Needwant and Tru Thoughts. Various labels will be DJing throughout the day – expect an eclectic selection of tracks from Claremont 56, Wah Wah 45, Future Disco and Warp Records.

Following the huge success of the Christmas market with over 44,500 music and beer fans in attendance, we’ll be partnering up with London Brewers’ Market for a fourth time, which will feature a selection of local breweries from the London area. Much like independent record labels, small independent breweries are currently on trend in the capital and making noise in the beer world too. In London the number of operating breweries has doubled within the past year, with their ales featuring on the bars of some of this country’s busiest pubs and restaurants.

Alongside the Independent Label Market, the London Brewers’ Market will feature breweries selling everything from pilsners to porters. Get a chance to meet some of the brewers behind London’s thriving beer scene, learn about the different varieties of beer, and enjoy some fine examples to drink at the market as well as to take home in bottle. There will be a beer garden set up amongst the ILM and Brewer’s stalls, where there will be product sampling, live music and DJ sets throughout the day.
