Independent Label Market celebrates 10th anniversary with summer edition

The Independent Label Market is celebrating its 10th anniversary and 30th edition in London. 

ILM started at Soho’s Berwick Street market in the summer of 2011. Since then, it has hosted 68 events across the globe and partnered with 600+ independent record labels from all over the UK, as well as Paris, Berlin, Bari, Barcelona, Rome, LA, Hamburg, Toronto, New York and LA. 

Joe Daniel their founder said: “When we came up with the idea for an indie label market, we never imagined doing a second one, let alone another 10 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 10 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 2021 ILM Summer Market takes place on Saturday, July 10th at Coal Drops Yard, King’s Cross with an all star crew of labels, including 4ADRecords, Bella Union, Brownswood, Caught by the River, Cherry Red Records, 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 & many more.
