MEDIMEX MUSIC MARKET
feat INDEPENDENT LABEL MARKET
The MEDIMEX MUSIC MARKET is back to Taranto from June 6 to 8 (from 17.00 until the end of the Giardini Peripato concerts – Via Pitagora 71). This unique event combines the world of independent labels to that of collectors, with a section devoted to publishing, illustration, vintage and design, carefully selected themes for a fair with exhibitors from all over Italy and Europe and a schedule of dj sets, music aperitifs and conferences with international guests.
The project is the result of the collaboration of some Puglia associations that have been very active in the regional cultural and music scene for years: Display Agency (BA), Associazione Culturale Discipline (BA), Associazione culturale Node (BA) with a PopUp The Sunday Medimex Special Edition, Soc. Coolclub (LECCE), Fiera del Disco SUD Italia (TA).
This year again, thanks to the well-established collaboration with the Independent Label Market in London, the Medimex Independent Label Market will host some of the most interesting independent labels of Europe, including Bella Union, Rough Trade, BBE Marathon, Fat Cat, Moshi Moshi, Blind Faith, Tempura Dischi, Metroklang, Tardam, Mexico 70 Feat. Tape Tales, just to name a few.
The market will also host the always very much looked-for Dj sets held by the representatives of the labels invited to the Market from Thursday, June 6 with a marathon (from 17:00 to midnight) and in the following days of the event with a program of Dj sets and concerts.
Thanks to the collaboration with Fiera del Disco, music-oriented independent designers and vinyl collectors from all over Italy will gather in Taranto with their rare and sought-after pieces and accessories.
The Kids Area dedicated to children between 5 and 12 will be back with images, colours and music to tell the story of the myths of rock: from the Beatles to the Queen, from David Bowie to Bob Marley.
Finally, the market will also host the PIN (Pugliesi Innovativi) Area dedicated to five of the winners of the PIN call, the initiative of the Department of Youth Policies of the Puglia Region addressed to young people with innovative entrepreneurial projects expected to boost local development.
The Market will also host a selection of the best cocktail bars and the most interesting and innovative food-trucks of Puglia to delight the palates of visitors.
