June 3 is the day to put the spotlight (but never literally) on what can be said as music packaged as tangible art —vinyl records. Trademarked by Satchmi, the leading vinyl distributor in the Philippines, Vinyl Day is an annual celebration not only of the vintage beauty and timeless potential of the gramophone record, but also of art, music, and community. 2017 marks the celebration’s fifth run, starting off from 2013 to 2015 at Bonifacio High Street, followed by one in UP Town Center on 2016 with 6,000 attendees, and it gets bigger and better each year.
This year, Satchmi will once again bring together the old and the new and transform Green Sun, Makati into every vintage and contemporary music lover’s paradise. Be there as the doors open at 12NN to flip through the countless decks of vinyl and secure your favorite records, Motorino Mk. II and Mk. III turntables, and exclusive Satchmi items with up to a 30% discount. Satchmi loyalty card members get a head start, with an 11AM entrance access and an additional 10% discount on all records. For photography enthusiasts, Satchmi also introduces Film Folk, a group of meticulous curators catering to your film and vintage camera needs.
Aside from Satchmi’s immersive listening booth and giveaways to remember the day by, top off the art-music-lifestyle fusion experience with concessionaires of food, drinks, and handmade goods, plus a pumped roster of performers. Check out the complete lineup chock full of some of the country’s top bands:
