The Vinyl Festival will make its debut in London this September.
If you’re partial to collecting your favourite albums and singles on vinyl, then you’re in luck, as two huge events have been announced for the UK this summer.
First up is the UK’s first ever Vinyl Festival, which takes place at London’s Printworks on September 23-24. A whopping 100 stalls represented by indie retailers and labels will be there, with another 40-plus stands dedicated to accessories every record collecter will need.
To top it all off, the fair will include the likes of BBC Radio 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and Virgin Radio’s Edith Bowman spinning some of their favourite tunes. There will also be a vinyl forum with industry speakers and an evaluation area where fans can get the crown jewels of their collection valued by experts.
And if that isn’t enough for you, HMV has announced details of their 2017 Vinyl Week, which returns for a second year following its successful debut in 2016. The 10-day event runs from June 8 to June 19, with limited edition reissues and new colour vinyl up for grabs. The full list of special releases is expected to be unveiled later this month.
