Helicon Records (Hebrew: הליקון‎‎) is a record label which was founded in Israel in 1985.

Aside from being the label of many Israeli artists, Helicon is also the exclusive distributor of Snapper Music, EMI and Universal Music Group (replacing PolyGram) in Israel, which includes artists like Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Madonna, Guns n' Roses, and Porcupine Tree. Helicon represents and distributes Israeli artists such as Aviv Geffen, Idan Raichel, Ivri Lider, and Blackfield.

In 2012, Helicon acquired the distribution rights of High Fidelity, an Israeli record label, which added more famous artists to the catalog, such as Assaf Avidan, Infected Mushroom and Balkan Beat Box.
