Indie Label Day is a day long fair celebrating diy music and culture on the island of Ireland. Brought to you by Art for Blind and Penske and taking place in Whelan’s across two rooms, the intention behind the event is to highlight the underground music scene in Ireland through a market-style event during the day and a live bands in the evening. The afternoon will feature pop-up stalls bringing together a range of independent record labels operating around the country as well as artists, photographers, zine-makers and book-sellers, soundtracked by live DJs. The market is an opportunity for labels and practitioners to sell physical merch from their rosters direct to the public, connecting with music fans in a social environment. Live djs will soundtrack proceedings throughout the afternoon. The evening will bring live performances from a curated line-up of bands from some of the participating labels. Indie Label Day will be the first event of it’s kind in Ireland focusing purely on record label culture.
