The two-day event is set to take place on the 23rd and 24th of September!
London venue Printworks will be filled with a familiar smell when the first ever dedicated vinyl festival heads there for a weekend this September! UK’s first ever Vinyl Festival will invite up to 6,000 people to enjoy an “immersive vinyl experience.”
A whopping 100 independent label stalls and 48 audio stands will be showcasing the latest audio technology and offering vinyl evaluations. 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.
Former protege of legendary DJ David Mancuso and curator of Classic Album Sundays, Colleen Murphy, will host a vinyl forum. BBC 6 Music’s DJ and Fun Lovin’ Criminals frontman Huey Morgan will talk on his experience of vinyl culture in New York while Charlatans lead singer, vinyl author and record label boss Tim Burgess will also talk about the subject. BBC Radio 6 Music presenter Steve Lamacq and Virgin Radio Breakfast Show host Edith Bowman will also be appearing. The quartet will also DJ over the weekend!
Ordinary tickets for the event range from £16 to £40.VIP tickets are also available! Buy your tickets here!
Vinyl is back and its popularity is still on the rise. One week last December, vinyl sales in the UK resulted in more revenue than that of downloads, which just goes to show how many LPs are being picked up each week in the UK.
Ian Peel, the editor-at-large and founder of Long Live Vinyl, whose publisher is organizing the event, said: “The Vinyl Festival celebrates the very best of the format we all love, and is exactly what our readers have been crying out for. We’re incredibly proud to bring you everything from a massive record fair to some of the UK’s finest indie labels and some top headline DJ performances, all under one roof.”
If you’re into collecting your favorite albums and singles on vinyl, this is the place to be!
