Founded in 2013 by British labels Suplex Cassettes, Kissability, and Sexbeat, Cassette Store Day is now rapidly blossoming into an international concern.
Burger Records now helm the event's North American activities, with the current collective set to be joined by Rice is Nice in Australia, Arch Hill in New Zealand, and Mansions and Millions and Späti Palace in Germany.
Returning later this year, Cassette Store Day is now bigger and better than ever. Co-founder Jen Long of Kissability said: "Cassette tapes aren’t just a format, they’re a culture, and cassette culture is as much about collaboration as doing it yourself. This year we’ve gone even further to try and include as many tape fans around the world. We want as many people as possible to be able to get involved and put out a tape, put on a gig or event, or get hold of that release they really want."
Burger Records added: "The snowball that is Cassette Store Day rolls into 2015 bigger, better and badder than ever before!!! When we're done spreading the good word of our fave format no one will ever ask "why cassettes?" again!!! BURGER BELIEVE THAT!!!"
