Scottish Independent Record Label Market to be staged in Aberdeen

Scottish Independent Record Label Market to be staged in Aberdeen

Aberdeen will be the setting for a major music industry event this weekend as representatives from a host of independent record labels descend on the city to sell their wares.

Following last year's successful debut, 57 Degrees North and the Scottish Music Industry Association (SMIA) are staging the second Independent Record Label Market at The Lemon Tree on October 17.

The likes of Edinburgh’s Gerry Loves Records, Highlands-based Middle of Nowhere Recordings, Aberdeen-born electro label Fine Grains Records and champions of north east music FitLike Records and Fat Hippy Records will be at the event.

Two record stores will also be in attendance; legendary Edinburgh folk and Scottish music specialists Coda Music and Aberdeen’s newest vinyl emporium Chameleon.

The festival will also feature DJ sets and a bar for refreshments.

57 Degrees North’s John Anderson said: “Last year’s market proved that there’s a real appetite for an event such as this in Aberdeen.

"And the feedback we got from both the labels and the public was that we should definitely do it again.

“I think people really appreciate the opportunity to chat to label owners and other record shoppers in a relaxed atmosphere - it’s a very social event.”

Stewart Henderson, formerly of The Delgados, heads up record label Chemikal Underground as well as being chairman of the SMIA.

He said: “We are delighted to be supporting another Independent Label Market at the The Lemon Tree. Last year's event was fantastic and it'll be great to see some new and familiar faces again.

“With my Chemikal Underground hat on, we love coming up to The Lemon Tree and Aberdeen in general, so we can't wait to see everyone again, sell some records and get the pints in.”
