Movement to keep vinyl alive

Walter William (DJ Pop), host and founding member of the #plastic_nation

Anyone who appreciates good, soulful music, especially in vinyl, is invited to attend a convergence of vinyl collectors, addicts and music fanatics from all over the country on 20 to 21 March 2021.

The event, called ‘Soul on Wax’ is described by Walter William (DJ Pop), host and founding member of the #plastic_nation Vinyl movement as soul or R&B music in vinyl format, made from wax or plastic.

“The event is led by Gauteng entertainment authority’s Director General, DJ Scott, and is being held to keep the legacy of vinyl records alive,” said William.

He added that the Gauteng Entertainment Authority engages and strategises on how to grow the movement to keep vinyl records alive.
“I too am a hard core vinyl collector of note with over 35 years of deejaying experience across all genres,” he added.

He said the meet and greet is to strengthen relationships between collectors, traders and suppliers of vinyl as most of the attendees will formally meet for the first time.
Anyone who appreciates good soulful music, especially the records in wax, is welcome to join at Hide Place Lodge, Bloemfontein at R100 per per person, from 12:00. Strict adherence to Covid-19 regulations will apply. Own coolers are allowed. Prebookings only to register attendees as no tickets will be sold at the gate.
