Too early to talk about Christmas? Not when we’re talking about the Christmas Indie Label Market!
The event showcasing TONNES of indie record labels is back and we couldn’t be happier.
It’s always a great occasion to meet face to face the record labels we work with, and see the beloved releases we pressed ripe & ready for picking in the stalls.
The 11th edition of the London Indie Label Market supported by AIM will take place at Old Spitalfields Market on Saturday 28th November, along with London Brewers’ Market: another reason not to miss this!
