Indie Label Market: London announces dates and line-up

Indie Label Market: London has announced the details of its bumper summer edition, and it’s shaping up to be the best one yet.

The event started at Soho’s Berwick Street market back in 2011, and since then it has hosted over 70 events across the world, which has seen them partner with more than 600 indie labels from the UK, Paris, Berlin, Rome, LA, Toronto, New York and Los Angeles.

This summer’s edition is taking place at the event’s latest home, Coal Drops Yard in Kings Cross on July 16th. It will house stalls from some of our favourite labels including: [PIAS], 4AD, BBE, Bella Union, Big Dada, Brownswood, Dirty Hit, Erased Tapes, Ghostly, Heavenly, Rough Trade and many more.

The upcoming edition also marks a first for the market. This summer, ILM will also feature stalls from artists and creators such as Colourbox Studio, Dan Jamieson, East London Printmakers, Hand Jazz and Kam Creates. You can just feel that over the next few years ILM is set to explode, as it segues from being solely focused on music, into a full celebration of the arts.

London Brewers Market will also be returning, featuring celebrated independent brewers such as Grain Cider, Brick Brewery, Five Points Brewing Co, Friendship Adventure, Gosnells Mead, London Beer Lab, Old Street Brewery, Standard Brew Co.

The event will be soundtracked by some specially curated DJ sets, with an afterparty at Spiritland following. Check out the full ILM label line-up below.
