Our first Fair for 2013 is happening this Sundays! We’re getting extremely excited and can say that everything’s ready to rock and it’s looking like it’s going to be one of our best fairs.
About the Fair
Why do we do the Fair? Its quite simple really, we love music and we’re very passionate when it comes to music that’s been released on vinyl. Our aim is to help Preserve the Culture of Vinyl & Record Fairs in Melbourne and to introduce it to new generations that will hopefully, in time, continue to do the same in the future.
Here are some answers to some of the questions we’ve been asked about the fair in the last few weeks:
How many tables of Vinyl & CD’s will there be:
We have 50 tables booked, so its going to be a Full House! To give you an idea of how much music there will be, Each table holds 10 Crates of Vinyl and a Crate holds 60-70 LP’s.
Who’ll be selling at the Fair?
We have a great mix of Quality Sellers coming from all over Melbourne include Private Collectors, DJ’s, Musicians, Radio Presenters, Independent Music Stores and Professional Sellers. Many of the regular sellers that are taking part have been personally invited back because they consistently bring a quality mix of music covering all styles and genres.
What style of music will there be?
There’ll be crate after crate of Rock and Pop on Vinyl and CD, including releases from Australia, UK and the USA. As always, expect to see a healthy slab of Original Soul, Funk, Disco & Jazz as well as stacks of 80′s & 90′s Hip Hop and Beats! Some sellers will have an stuff like weird Electronica, Progressive Rock, Folk, Krautrock and New Wave. There’s also going to be Record Sleeves and music memorabilia. There’s a couple of EX DJ’s specializing in Dance music inc.House, Breaks, Electro & Techno.
Will there be Funk, Hip Hop & Jazz?
Yes we got all of those covered. There’s DJ Idem, Johnny Topper, Plug 7 and a handful of others who’ll be specializing in all things Funky
