Independent Label Market will be holding its first market in Canada in cooperation with Paper Bag Records, NXNE and StageFright Publicity on Saturday June 15th, 2013 at the Ryerson University Campus Common. The market brings together a number of Canada’s finest independent labels to sell their product directly to the public. Culture Addicts loves any event that brings more music to more people – thumbs up!
Independent Label Market will include Paper Bag Records, Arts & Crafts, The Outside Music Label, Last Gang Records, Static Clang, Nevado Records and Maple Music.
“People love to buy music when they can hold it and feel it, and in our digitally focused age it’s a pleasure to be bringing a more intimate format for record-buying to Toronto as part of NXNE festival,” says Independent Label Market’s founder Joe Daniel. “Expect label bosses from the cream of Canada’s independent music scene selling catalogue items, rarities, and one-off special items made just for this event.”
“As the music industry embraces mp3s and a more digital strategy, Independent Label Market is proving to be an valuable reminder of how music retail can be a social affair; people hanging out together as a community and buying records,” says NXNE Festival Director Christopher Roberts.
Since launching in May 2011 on Berwick Street in London, Independent Label Market has brought together the founders of over 120 of the World’s greatest Independent Record Labels on both sides of the Atlantic to sell their fresh vinyl produce directly to the public at that traditional goods exchange, a market stall.
