The celebration of music and vinyl culture will see DJ sets throughout the day and an afterparty at Spiritland. Bella Union, Brownswood, Caught by the River, Cherry Red, Erased Tapes, Fierce Panda, Fire / Earth, Full Time Hobby, Gare du Nord, Heavenly Recordings, Hyperdub, Late Night Tales, LEX, Matador, Memphis Industries, Mukatsuku, One Little Independent Records, Partisan, Sonic Cathedral, Upset The Rhythm and Whities/ad93 are all confirmed.
ILM Co-Founder Joe Daniel said: “When we came up with the idea for an indie label market, we never imagined doing a second one, let alone another ten 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 ten 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.”
ILM is partnering with Dice to offer a 10 percent discount on all drinks at the London Brewers’ Market throughout the event. Sign up at dice.fm.
