CALL OUT FOR MARKET PLACE!

Supersonic Festival – June 16-18th 2017

 

The Market Place has been a vibrant part of Supersonic Festival for many years now. It’s a space for independent distributors, record labels, poster artists and peddlers of curiosities to sell their wares, network and for you to meet each other face to face.  The Market Place is also where the bands sell their merch. This year, the Market Place will be situated in the light, glass-walled canteen of our Digbeth hub venue, equipped with a tea room serving a selection of epicurean delights.

 

This year at Supersonic, we’ve got a few spaces still available in our Festival Marketplace.
The deal? For £200, you get 2 weekend tickets to the festival and a stall to sell your goods, network and meet audiences face to face alongside likeminded folks.

 

Deadline for booking 18th May

$100 and a T-shirt- a film about zines

‘$100 and a T-shirt’ is a cultural analysis of what causes zine makers to tick; what the hell zines are, why people make zines, the origin of zines, the resources and community available for zine makers, and the future of zines. The film interviews around 70 zine makers, ex-zine makers, and readers from the northwest USA. Four years in the making, the film features footage of the Portland Zine Symposium, a zine bicycle tour of Portland, and activities bringing zine culture to life. If you’ve ever wanted to know more about zine history and about what writers are doing right now to make their publications relevant to the 21st Century, this film may give you some clues.

Also, look out for our zine panel discussion that follows the film, and make sure you take a look at the Birmingham Zine Festival exhibition and stalls.

Previous stall holders have included: Rough Trade, Southern Records, Conspiracy Records, Burning World Records, Future Noise, First Fold Records, Wonderleague, Bad Egg Records, Polar Bear Shop, Eat A Book Records, Cold Spring.

“Sitting behind our stall at Supersonic last year was the highlight of the year for Bad Egg. The atmosphere was excellent, the banter was rowdy and the chance to engage with so many people in such a short space of time was intense. As a DiY label it’s almost impossible to reach such a wide and receptive audience like the Supersonic crowd – we not only sold some records but also made some friends in the process. REAL ones too.” Dave – Bad Egg Records

We have a limited number of stalls available – if you’re interested see HERE for more details
