Why you should head to The Vinyl Pop Up this Saturday!
By Bandook - April 11, 2019
‘Vinyl’s not just a part of music history, it’s an experience.’
When global music giant Sony Music started the first edition of The Vinyl Pop Up on Record Store Day last April, it was to celebrate a love for vinyl records, its history and culture with “uniquely curated activities”.
The second edition seeks to build on that love, that experience. On offer, are over 2000 titles, rare & exclusive box sets and more.
What’s changed this time around, is the venue. Last time, the sale went down at The Quarter, Royal Opera House. This time, it’s more centrally located.
