New East London record fair to take place this week
A new East London record fair hosted by Next Door Records will take place this weekend.
The record store has teamed up with Hackney venue, Oslo, to host the free record fair this Saturday (22nd) from 12 to 6PM.
Stalls at the fair include Ninja Tune, Partisan Records, La Vida Es Un Mus, Tome Records, Third Man Records among others. There will also be live music from many of the stalls with Next Door Recordings holding a set from 1 to 2PM.
Next Door Records, the Shepherd’s Bush-based store, bar and cafe, opened in August 2020. Since then they’ve organised DJ events, supper clubs and workshops across London.
The event comes after news broke at the end of last month that vinyl sales in the UK had hit their highest level in three decades.
The resurgence of vinyl has meant pressing plants have experienced ongoing issues meeting the spike in demand. A new pressing plant is set to open in Middlesbrough to help reach targets.
