Independent Label Market Advent Calendar

Hey, it’s December! I will begrudgingly allow you to do Christmas-related things as of now. Mainly just opening advent calendars though. I’m still judging your already-up decorations. And speaking of advent calendars, the Independent Label Market has launched one. Digitally.

Unable to hold its traditional Christmas market, what with all the things and stuff, ILM will instead highlight a different UK indie label each day from now until 24 Dec. Gifts for you from each will include exclusive artist and label mixtapes, vinyl-only mixes, festive discount codes and flash sales.

There will also be an ILM takeover of Tim Burgess’s Twitter listening parties, which will see him and fans listening along to Alex Cameron’s ‘Miami Memory’ on 9 Dec, Dream Wife’s ‘So When You Gonna…’ and Keeley Forsyth’s ‘Debris’ on 10 Dec, then Ghostpoet’s ‘I Grow Tired But I Dare Not Fall Asleep’ and Baxter Dury’s ‘The Night Chancers’ on 11 Dec.

Is that enough? Well, either way there’s more. There will also be a raffle to raise money for homelessness charity Crisis, with a whole load of indie label prizes to be won. Have a look at what you could win and bung £2 (or more) into the pot here.

Keep your eyes on the ILM Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts for more on that advent calendar.
