JUMP ON THE FREE ORTOFON SHUTTLE BUSES THIS RECORD STORE DAY
The 33 1/3 revolution continues on Saturday, April 13 as the annual Record Store Day returns in 2019.
Come this weekend, conga lines of enthusiastic vinyl-devotees will weave their way through crowded pavements, cross busy roads and brave whatever Melbourne’s unpredictable weather throws at them, just to arrive at their fave record store.
And we applaud their support of record stores across the globe.
Head to your nearest record store this Saturday, and you’ll be rewarded with limited edition LPs and be treated to in-store gigs by talented musicians.
Melbourne record-hunters can also join us on one of the two free Ortofon Record Store Day shuttle buses.
Record Store Day is now an eagerly awaited event globally, and it’s a day to visit dozens of Australian record stores, enjoy DJ sets, savour a snag on a barbecue and snap up a decent discount when you buy vinyl.
Record Store Day news gets even better because Turntable Titan Pro-Ject and Cartridge Giant, Ortofon have signed on for the fifth year running as this year’s celebrations sponsor.
As part of the festivities, Pro-Ject will give one Vinyl lover the chance to win one of its slinky Essential III Phono turntables finished in gorgeous walnut.
To be in the running post a photo of your weirdest record on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #RSDWin and tag Pro-Ject @project_audio on Instagram or @ProJectAUNZ on Facebook.
Once you do this, go to recordstoreday.com.au/win/ to submit your entry.
Two runners up will snare themselves a Spin Clean Record Washing System.
