Cassette Store Day 2015: The Full List

With a generation of music lovers adopting the vinyl as their own it wasn’t going to be long before another dead format was resurrected for the joy it once gave. Cassettes are now being touted as this new musical zombie. Cassette Store Day is looking to capitalise on this apocalypse.

Started in the UK by indie record labels Suplex Casettes, Kissability, and Sexbeat in 2013 and now with the mammoth Burger Records joining in as well, 2015 looks set to be the break through year for this lesser-known day of adoration to a bygone format.

 Burger Records had this to say: “The snowball that is Cassette Store Day rolls into 2015 bigger, better and badder than ever before!!! When we’re done spreading the good word of our fave format no one will ever ask “why cassettes?” again!!! BURGER BELIEVE THAT!!!”

The reason it is so loved is how easily and cheaply it can be produced. It can be a young band’s way in and as Burger Records continue to prove it still holds a dear place in all our heart. With the calibre of bands including The Maccabees, Gengahr and Girl Band all signed up 2015 is Cassette Store Day breakthrough year.

Cassette Store Day is on October 17 2015 – be there at the start of something beautiful.
