Meet the independent labels at PHIL

29 March 2024

Following up on the recent announcements about the new location for the Record Fair and Dutch Classic Albums, we continue with some more information about the first edition of the Haarlem Record Label Market (HRLM).

The Haarlem Vinyl Festival encourages you to go out and visit your record stores, especially on Record Store Day and Record Fairs, but let's not forget about the independent labels. That's one of the reasons why we are hosting an independent label market as part of this year's program. On Saturday and Sunday, visitors can visit the freely accessible market at PHIL, allowing you to meet the people behind some of your favorite acts. You might even catch some of the artists playing or signing records...

The PHIL is our main festival location and an ideal starting point for your Haarlem Vinyl Festival journey, as the place will be buzzing with a day program including listening sessions, talks, signing sessions, and performances throughout the whole weekend. It's also just a 10-minute walk to the outdoor Record Fair at Dreef, as well as other festival locations like Jopenkerk and Patronaat. The PHIL café and foyer will be freely accessible all weekend.

If you are a vendor interested in selling at the Haarlem Record Label Market (HRLM) or the Record Fair at Dreef, you can contact Record Planet to discuss options via
