We’re pretty confident that the answer to that question would be a resounding YES!
So! This year Belfast Underground get ready to launch a new designated area in our record shop giving local bands
and recording artists a chance to showcase their music on prime retail shelf space and sell to the public on either CD or vinyl. We feel that the sales presence for local artists on record stores shelves has dwindled in recent years and we wish to slowly change that.
If you are interested in learning more about how the system will work and how to get involved, please get in contact below.
Plans are underway for Belfast Underground’s first all day record fair which will take place in it’s upstairs function room at the end of November 2018. We invite anyone with any records that they wish to sell to book a table for the day. The concept will be based around the traditional record fair format of renting a big table for the day (supplied by us) bringing your records in crates, and selling them. All very straightforward and a great way of earning some extra cash ahead of Christmas.
More details about table pricing, availability etc to follow in our next newsletter.
This week Belfast Underground’s vinyl department begin to introduce a selection of the finest & biggest selling albums in music history, all on brand new, sealed vinyl.

Fleetwood Mac – Rumours
Sex Pistols – Never Mind The Bollocks
The Clash – London Calling
The Beatles – Rubber Soul

“Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of Korova. A Belfast based event that aims to link art and music utilising non-club spaces. Korova goes beyond what is normally expected of a music event, showcasing local artists of varying disciplines, whilst supporting local venues and local charities. Alongside the event is the KorovaKast guest mix series, encouraging local artists to play those songs they love but not necessarily in a club environment, allowing them the platform to get a little bit, well, weird. Get involved. Get weird. Korova.”
With another stunning AVA in the bag, Belfast shows scant evidence of slowing down as a city bristling with passion, resoluteness and ingenuity. To that end, Resist founder Koichi – with the support of Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Help Musicians Northern Ireland, Arts and Humanities Research Council – AHRC, Sound and Music – has announced a fascinating day/night of workshops, talks and music to be held in the Black Box on 7th July.
