WHY:
Back in 1989 four Dutch teenagers formed a band called Heideroosjes. By the time they wanted to release their first album, no record company was interested. Around 1992 punk rock wasn’t really fashionable and internet wasn’t heard of yet. In true DIY-spirit the band founded their own record label, Fairytale Records.

WHAT:
The very first release was the Heideroosjes album ‘Noisy Fairytales’ in 1992, which ended up selling over 30.000 copies in Holland alone. Major success came with the 3d album ‘FIFI’ which got stuck in the Dutch album-charts for over half a year! For the complete  catalogue please check the CATALOGUE page.

HOW:
Throughout the years Fairytale Records has only concentrated on Heideroosjes. Even though the band grew big and got signed with the world’s biggest punk rock label EPITAPH, the band members kept doing small band-projects and  making DVD’s through Fairytale Records.

STRATEGY:
Fairytale Records is still focused on Heideroosjes but wants to extend its activities. In 2007 Fairytale Publishing was founded and Fairytale Records now offers new opportunities for other  bands and artists. What makes us unique is that there’s no need to send your demo! Fairytale will only sign artists they’ve seen live.
