Music serves as a vessel for history – both personal and communal – and for a long time was recorded and conserved through the creation of vinyl records. In our digital society today, music can be made and spread across the world in seconds, putting the days of attentive physical work to construct a record behind us.
As with most mediums that have become vintage, there is now a great attraction to the nostalgia around collecting records. The engagement that comes with playing a physical record is a special feeling, enhancing the cultural and spiritual experience that the actual music provides you with.
This Saturday, 24 September, the V&A Waterfront’s Watershed is hosting a Record Fair for Heritage Day. Along with 3000 vinyl records, there will be a selection of CDs, music books, band merch and cassettes for sale. You can enjoy browsing to the sweet sounds of live DJs playing throughout the day. Join fellow music-lovers and record-enthusiasts for a day of tunes and appreciation.
