LONDON SUMMER MARKET – Independent Label Market

LONDON SUMMER MARKET

16th July, 2022

The sun is returning and so is our London annual summer bash at Coal Drops Yard!
As usual the finest indie labels in the land will be selling limited editions and vinyl rarities as well as exclusive label and band merchandise. This summer event will be impeccably soundtracked by DJ sets curated by the music lovers from Spiritland.
And it wouldn’t be a proper party without our pals from London Brewers’ Market, pouring you pints of locally brewed beers!
