After the success of last year’s Torstraßen Festival label market, we’ve decided to come back bigger and better in 2018. This year’s edition sees us partnering with the London based Independent Label Market to bring you a day’s worth of digging into the hallowed halls of the iconic and historic Volksbühne Theater.

The market will be open from 12:00 – 18:00, in the Volksbühne foyers on several floors. Drinks, coffee, ice cream and a BBQ will be available throughout the day. Rarities and exclusives can be expected from several of the labels.
