TVD Radar: Independent Label Market: London announces its 10th Anniversary Summer Market, 7/10

VIA PRESS RELEASE | Independent Label Market celebrates its 10th anniversary with a special Summer Market on Saturday 10th July. Taking place at Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross with a first class line up of independent labels and partners including 4AD, Rough Trade, Sunday Best, Moshi, and Music Declares Emergency. A celebration of music and vinyl culture plus DJ sets throughout the day and an after party at Spiritland.

In 2021, the ILM Mentoring Scheme is working with Clue Records and Sad Club Records.

ILM is looking forward to a knock out summer event as 2021 marks the 30th London edition and 10 years of Independent Label Market. It all started with humble beginnings at Soho’s Berwick Street market in the summer of 2011. Since then, ILM has hosted 68 events across the globe and shared adventures with an eclectic crew of 600+ independent record labels from all over the UK to Paris, Berlin, Bari, Barcelona, Rome, LA, Hamburg, Toronto, New York and LA.

Joe Daniel, ILM Co-Founder says “When we came up with the idea for an indie label market, we never imagined doing a second one, let alone another ten years of events. The idea back in 2011 was to bring together our favourite labels to celebrate a particular kind of creativity and passion that you only find in the independent sector. The fact that we are here ten years later is a huge credit to the community of labels who consistently find new and exciting ways to grow and adapt in a fast changing industry. We love the camaraderie and their tireless commitment to presenting the most envelope-pushing music around.”

The ILM Summer Market takes place Saturday 10th July at Coal Drops Yard, King’s Cross with an all star crew of labels including 4AD, Bella Union, Brownswood, Caught by the River, Cherry Red, Erased Tapes, Fierce Panda, Fire / Earth, Full Time Hobby, Gare du Nord, Heavenly Recordings, Hyperdub, Late Night Tales, LEX, Matador, Memphis Industries, Moshi, Mukatsuku, One Little Independent Records, Partisan, Rough Trade, Sonic Cathedral, Sunday Best, Upset The Rhythm, Whities/ad93 and many more.

Market stalls will be brimming with limited editions, vinyl rarities and test pressings as well as exclusive label and band merchandise. The summer event will be impeccably soundtracked by ILM curated DJ sets from artists and labels throughout the day with a special after party at Spiritland.

ILM will be joined by it’s favourite drinking partner, the excellent London Brewers’ Market which will be showcasing the best of London’s lively, diverse and exciting independent brewing scene. ILM is also partnering with Dice to offer a 10% discount on all drinks at the London Brewers’ Market throughout the event… only available by sign up via this link

Partnerships & Initiatives | In 2021, the ILM Mentoring Scheme continues to work with Clue Records, and welcomes Sad Club Records to help support an exciting cohort of artists experimenting with new techniques and blurring the boundaries between art, performance and music. The scheme promotes emerging artists from different genres to new audiences, by giving them and the small independent labels which release them a focused platform at ILM UK events.

The scheme launched in 2016 (supported by the Arts Council England) in collaboration with four leading independent record labels helping them to develop their presence in the wider industry in addition to practical support such as funding for operational costs, workshops with industry experts, promotional opportunities and much more.

Music Declares Emergency | Music Declares Emergency returns to ILM to raise awareness and share their expertise with labels, artists and fans about meeting the challenges of the climate crisis. MDE is a group of artists, music industry professionals and organisations that stand together to declare a climate and ecological emergency and call for an immediate governmental response to protect all life on Earth.
