- How much is the entrance fee? We haven´t decided on the entrance fee yet. Most probably it will be 3 euros. We´ll post the exact info as soon as it´s available.- How many records can I bring with me to swap? All the visitors of the UNDERGROUND EUROPE record fair and swap can bring in as many records as they can carry. If you need a table because you have a lot of records or because it´s easier to give them visibility, you can also rent a "flying table" for as little as 3 euros an hour.- What´s a "flying table"?
A "flying table" is a table you can book just for an hour or a few hours, but not necessarily for the whole duration of the event. If you don´t want to spend the whole day sitting behind a table with your records or you only have a certain amount of time to spare, you can book 1 meter table for a certain time (for example from 2 pm until 5 pm) and then someone else will rent it. This gives people more flexibility and also the chance to sell their own records for a very small fee.
- How can I book a "flying table" and what are the costs?
You can book a table in advance writing to firstname.lastname@example.org or on the day of the event. The tables are given on first-come-first-serve basis, so in order to be sure your table will be there waiting for you, it´s better to book early. The cost of a
"flying table" is 5 euros for the first hour and 3 euros for every hour afterwards. Your available space is 110 x 50 cm, which holds
about 2 LP boxes and 1 singles box comfortably.
- Can I bring major label releases?
We all know that many bands that released records on independent labels also released records on majors. Major label releases are not banned from the fair, but are not our main focus. Therefore, if you are selling a mix of independent as well as major label vinyl, we have no problem with that. If your main focus is major label releases, this is probably the wrong place for you.
- What are the fees for the exhibitors? There are several options, based on the size of the table. The cost varies from 18 to 50 euros a day. For the list of prices please send an e-mail to: email@example.com- When shall I register to participate UNDERGROUND EUROPE as an exhibitor?
As soon as possible. The space in the hall is limited as is the number of tables.
- Can you help with accommodations? Yes, we can help, if you contact us timely. Here's also a website where you can see what the local accommodation options are in Berlin: https://www.berlin.de/en/accommodation/- What can I expect to find at UNDERGROUND EUROPE?
