For this special first outing, artists involved include a mix of international and Dutch talent, with Egyptian Lover, Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy, Joris Voorn, DeWolff, DJ Guzz, Jungle by Night, Naaz, Selah Sue, Bertolf and more. Plus, there’s talks, workshops, listening sessions and more covering topics from community to sustainability within the vinyl industry – featuring countless experts within the field.

Taking place across the city’s leading venues, including Patronaat and PHIL, Haarlem Vinyl Festival expects to welcome 15,000 vinyl enthusiasts from around the world to Amsterdam’s creative little sister. The programme will explore all elements of the industry, and also a large open-air record fair – in collaboration with Europe’s largest organization Record Planet – where visitors can find old and new gems. Patronaat and PHIL will act as key venues, as well as other spaces within the city hosting talks and interviews, listening sessions, live podcasts, vinyl auctions and more
Another key element of the programming is the collaboration with Making Vinyl. Making Vinyl will work in collaboration with Haarlem Festival, hosting a conference covering business related topics. Making Vinyl Europe starts on Wednesday (27th) with a Meet & Greet networking event, continues the next two days with two tracks of general and more technical sessions, as well as a tour of Record Industry, one of Europe’s largest pressing plants.
An opening panel features leading Dutch professionals, representing various sectors of the host country’s vinyl value chain, including manufacturing services, raw materials suppliers, as well as retail and distribution. Leading vinyl business experts from both sides of the Atlantic, as well as far as New Zealand, will share knowledge and innovation on such hot topics, such as sustainability, quality control, what recent European pressing plants learned in setting up their operations, and maximizing productivity in a rapidly expanding industry.
