|Aim Launch ‘labelled With Love’ Festival|
|8th August 2014|
Labelled With Love is a new music festival for the general public curated by independent record Labels. The aim is to showcase the best new music in the independent sector and raise the profile of independent labels who have consistently produced some of the countries finest artists over the years including Adele, The Arctic Monkeys and Anna Calvi...and that's just the 'A's'.
The festival will be promoted by Club Fandango in association with AIM through the month of September at venues across the UK with confirmed digital partner 7 Digital and media partners XFM, Music Week and DIY.
