Launched last year, Cassette Store Day was intended as a celebration of that most humble of musical formats.
Excelling the expectations of its founders, Cassette Store Day is set to return in 2014. Taking place on September 27th, organisers have put out a call for labels to become involved.
Kissability and Suplex Cassettes will return to run things in the UK and the EU, while the United States will be covered by Burger Records.
Cassette Store Day founder Jen Long: "When planning this year we really tried to keep cassette labels and fans at the heart of the event. Last year grew far bigger than we had expected so we are thrilled to have Burger involved to help us cover the US side."
Burger Records added: "Burger Records loves tapes! We've built our foundation on the forgotten format and have been preaching the merits of warm analog cassette culture for years. We’re honored to be ambassadors of Cassette Store Day 2014 in the good ol USA! We plan to bring some of our favorite labels to the table and invite everyone to the party and partake in the fun phenomena of releasing top shelf music on cassette tapes in pop culture today!"
