Independent distribution and label service provider Ditto Music is launching a coffee chain, called Ditto Coffee.
Ditto has previously worked with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Stormzy and Chance The Rapper.
The first Ditto Coffee store is already open in Liverpool and more store openings are to be announced throughout 2019.
According to Ditto, the High Street chain will give ‘independent artists access to a brand new route to market.’
Across all locations in the UK, independent artists can sell their music physically in-store.
Ditto Coffee will also host in-store Live Sessions, while Ditto promises that each Ditto Coffee location will ‘celebrate the local independent music scene’.
Ditto Music also claims to be the first online distribution company to offer independent artists a physical space ‘to connect with other artists and get their music heard to a worldwide audience’.
“Ditto Coffee will put local independent music on to the High Street.”
