Today’s technology makes music readily available to each of us with a simple click, so we don’t often think of enjoying music through one of its more authentic forms of transmission – the vinyl. That’s why we were glad to find out that ‘Behind This Wall’ and Netil 360 are teaming up to organise a festival celebrating the medium of vinyl: with the aim of uniting individuals whose appreciation for music goes beyond downloading tunes off the Internet, this one-day festival is ideal for musicians, DJs and independent record labels to buy and exchange records.
Held up on the roof of Netil House in Hackney, this amazing event will take place in association with independent record labels and stores, including Wolf Music, Luv Luv Luv and Eglo Records. And that’s not all: cocktail bars and street food will be at the ready to satiate your palates, and fresh performances by aspiring local DJs will set an atmosphere for all to enjoy.
This festival will take place on Saturday, 18th August. Visit the event’s Facebook page for more information: www.facebook.com/events/413767735326687.
