The fifth annual Independent Record Label Market: Aberdeen will take place at The
Lemon Tree on Saturday, November 3.
The event, which is organised by 57 Degrees North, the Scottish Music Industry
Association (SMIA), All In Ideas and Aberdeen Performing Arts (APA), will once again
see an eclectic selection of Scotland’s independent labels selling their wares direct to the public.
The market runs from 11:30am-4:30pm and entry is free. The event will also feature DJ
sets from 1pm, and a bar for refreshments.
57 Degrees North co-ordinator John Anderson said: “It’s unbelievable that the market is now in its fifth year. As usual, we’ve got labels coming from around the country, including some who are attending for the first time.
“It’s now an established event in the city, and feedback has shown that it’s a day both music fans, and the labels themselves, look forward to.”
Robert Kilpatrick, general manager, Scottish Music Industry Association (SMIA) said: “Now in its fifth year, the Independent Record Label Market: Aberdeen continues to provide a fantastic opportunity to delve into the diverse and vibrant output of Scotland’s independent labels.
“With the market being free to attend for all (including the labels selling their wares), this event is truly by and for music fans.
“As a membership organisation and innovation agency that exists to represent and develop Scotland’s music industry, the SMIA is incredibly proud to be working with 57 Degrees North and we look forward to heading up to Aberdeen to support the work of artists and record labels across the country.”
Aberdeen Performing Arts cultural programme manager, Steven Milne, said: “We are proud to once again host this event at The Lemon Tree – it’s always a fantastic day for music fans in the city.”
