The Crate Digger Record Fair, Melbourne’s longest running inner-city record fair, is back for its fourth year with the first fair of 2013 at Fitzroy’s Yah Yah’s on Saturday 23rd February. Held in conjunction with the Hello Sailor Vintage Fair, Crate Digger is the place to take your search for those elusive pieces of vinyl that you must have in your collection.
For this fair we have a range of stallholders, including two veterans of the Melbourne rock and roll scene downsizing their private collections, a stallholder returning from a buying trip through Europe and the USA, as well as our usual range of private collectors and record shops.
Expect everything from classic rock and roll, indie, pop, blues, punk, soul, doo-wop, R&B, reggae, ska, dub, electro, disco, soundtracks… we cater for all genres, with a mixture of local and overseas pressings, to help you find sought after rarities or collection fillers. Prices range from the dirt-cheap bargain bin specials, right through to rare, once in a lifetime finds that might cost you a pineapple or two…
As always, entry is free, the beer is cold and the good people from Disco Beans will be serving up some tasty Japanese home-style snacks for your browsing pleasure.
Doors open at midday – so we’ll see you down at the Crate Digger Record Fair at Yah Yah’s for the first time in 2013.
