INDEPENDENT LABEL MARKET: CHRISTMAS 2012
Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd December
Old Spitalfields Market
** FIRST EVER TWO DAY CHRISTMAS MARKET **
Long Term Partnership Announced with the Association of Independent Music
Independent Label Market is proud to announce it will be returning to Spitalfields for a very special two day Christmas market in association with AIM. On Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd December, the heads of over 50 of the UK’s greatest independent labels will come together to sell this season’s most sought after stocking-fillers directly to the public at what will be the biggest and best Independent Label Market yet.
As the music industry embraces mp3s and a more digital strategy, Independent Label Market is proving to be an valuable reminder of how music retail can be a social affair; people hanging out together as a community and buying records.
Independent Label Market: Christmas’ will welcome back a host of labels from previous markets including Bella Union, Brownswood, Fabric, Peacefrog, Heavenly, One Little Indian, Soul Jazz and Rough Trade.
We are also delighted to announce many newcomers including Acid Jazz, Believe, Fika. Tape Club, GETME!, Ground Level, Hottwerk, Infectious, !K7, Killing Moon, Laissez Faire Club, LoJinx, No Pain In Pop, Planet Mu, Slip Discs, Stranger Records and Strut.
The heads of these labels will be manning the booths, selling their own products—new, catalogue, rarities—at this unique and intimate new format for record buying. There will be a host of exclusive releases, artist appearances and much much more..!
AIM and the founders of ILM have entered into a partnership to support the rollout of the markets both in the UK and across the world.
Alison Wenham, AIM CEO said: "Joe and Katie came up with a simple, a great idea, and put it into practice. As AIM is the home of the world’s greatest indie labels, we are naturally delighted to be able to support the development of the Independent Label Market. We intend to do this in partnership with WIN, the Worldwide Independent Network, our global trade body."
Joe Daniel, co-founder of Independent Label Market Ltd, said: "It’s fantastic that an organisation such as AIM has chosen to support Independent Label Market. We are excited to start what we hope to be a long standing and fruitful relationship with AIM.”
