10 Sep Cassette Store Day 2019 and it’s exclusive releases
Cassette Store Day 2019 is set for its seventh installment on 12th October 2019.
Firstly, Cassette Store Day was founded in 2013 by UK indie labels Suplex Cassette, Kissability and Sexbeat. At this time, the event has been expanded and is now celebrated internationally. In fact, this year’s Cassette Store Day will have events taking place in the USA, Europe, China, Japan, New Zealand, and Australia. Even more, the exclusive Cassette Store Day releases will be made available online for those who are unable to attend.
The Cassette Revival
Basically, the cassette comeback isn’t over yet. Certainly, cassette sales are going up in 2019. At the present time, it is predicted that by the end of 2019 75,000 tapes will be sold in the UK. After all, tape heads don’t care if the redux stays small scale. Undeniably that’s part of the charm.
So John Kannenberg is the director and chief curator of the Museum of Portable Sound. To explain, he says: “We’ve been detached from music as a physical thing for long enough now that vinyl and cassettes don’t just feel nostalgic, they feel almost otherworldly.” Then Kannenberg continues, “From the moment digital music began to surpass physical music, it was only a matter of time before the pendulum would swing back for a segment of the market.”
Presently according to The Official Charts Company, the biggest cassette release in the UK for January to July 2019 is a pop release. Specifically, Billie Eilish’s debut album When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? Overall with 4,000 sales of the ‘Exclusive Black Cassette.’ Finally, we can anticipate the growth of cassette releases in the upcoming years. Especially with Cassette Store Day 2019.
