Introducing ▼–VIBE Festival
▼i s u a l artists X ⓇecordⓈhops
[A New festival for AUTUMN 2020]
10 Oct—22 Nov 2020
The message of this Autumn’s 1st ▼–VIBE Festival then is ‘come – hang – check‘. Check your local recordshops, visually but also sonically. Come explore them as:
- encyclopedic and visual sq/m spaces of music and cultural history.
- breakers of emerging or off-beat music talent.
- social hubs for exploring your own music tastes.
To help get this started, there’s a shop list showing you the type of things you can expect to find in-store. Happening ONLY through the very kind participation of the best local record shops.
- Art | See visual art in local record shops.
- Stories | Revisit documentary and record shop stories.
- Insight | Q&A sessions.
So, to reiterate; the message of this Autumn’s 1st ▼–VIBE is to come and check the recordshop. Come, hang and check some of the visual art in-store through record-sleeves or special exhibitions. See how the record shop IS not only a place to discover breaking new music talent, BUT ALSO a vital trigger to maintaining vibrant neighborhoods. Enjoy anytime: for us, the ▼–VIBE Festival is a way of featuring some of our favorites, and spotlighting the visual aspect of record shops this autumn: between 10 Oct—22 Nov 2020.
About Disc:cover blog
Disc:cover is set-up by me Paul Wright with a couple of colleagues who met via the @spottedbylocals network. After a few exchanges on Instagram, the Disc:cover idea began taking shape: the mission being to celebrate the unique vibe of the local record shop – past, present and future. So comes Disc:cover_blog looking at the ▼isual vibe behind the music. And introducing ▼-VIBE Festival, which features visual art/ist exhibitions, and events in and about local record shops.
