48th edition Mega Record & CD Fair | November 11 & 12 | Jaarbeurs Utrecht, the Netherlands

Elvis and his heroes

On Saturday and Sunday November 11th & 12th for the 48th time, collectors of vintage vinyl and freshly pressed records and cd‘s meet again in Utrecht, here the Jaarbeurs Expo houses more than 500 stands in 12.500 square metres of floor space dedicated to a great extent to good old and yet super contemporary vinyl records. At the spring edition this year visitors from 65 different countries were counted from almost all 6 continents. Vinyl is back at the Mega Record & CD Fair, even though some might say it never left the building. This Autumn the fair will celebrate Elvis and his female competitors from the fifties and sixties with an exhibition. Like last year the 48th edition coincides again with the Le Guess Who? festival. With performances by over 100 bands and musicians this festival is gaining worldwide exposure. As is the record fair itself, altogether, a unique experience.

Elvis and his heroes

Ask twelve year old kids who is the world most famous rock star and they will shout ‘Elvis‘! Expert Johan van Wezel is a collector of Elvis records and memorabilia for most of his life and will exhibit at the fair some of the highlights from his impressive collection. Imagine autographs, clothing, lyrics and rare records. Besides this, DJ Miss Twist curated a vinyl cover expo called ‘The Female Heroes of Elvis‘. She will exhibit the original vinyl recordings of these mainly black musicians from those days that not only Elvis loved to listen to but also inspired modern artists like Adele, Madonna and Beyoncé.
