Haarlem Vinyl Festival announces first artists and events

From Friday 27 to Sunday 29th of September, Anastasia Kristensen, Altin Gün, Cassy, Colin Benders, Douglas Firs, Shakedown Tim & The Rhythm Revue and Willem, among others will be a part of proceedings for the second edition of Haarlem Vinyl Festival. Spread across the idyllic city of Haarlem, just 20 minutes outside of Amsterdam, Haarlem Vinyl Festival expects to welcome a total of at least 25,000 visitors to the second edition of the world’s first multi-day vinyl festival.

Vinyl enthusiasts from all over the world will return to Haarlem for the second edition of the Haarlem Vinyl Festival in September. During the three-day vinyl culture program, all aspects of vinyl are discussed from production and manufacturing to marketing, art, design, history and more. In addition to the extensive day and night music and art program, the program includes the Making Vinyl conference, Guided Tours at Europe’s largest pressing plant Record Industry and a large, freely accessible open-air record fair – in collaboration with Record Planet – where visitors can find old and new gems. New in this year’s program is the independent label market at PHIL.

Day program at PHIL

The day program at the main festival location PHIL is shaping up nicely and features national legends like Urban Dance Squad’s frontman Rudeboy alongside international selectors like Cassy talking about their favorite records. Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson and Tim Bowness will host a live version of The Album Years podcast, whereas popular music academic Karlyn King will talk about the modern-day fan experience and the gendering of vinyl.

A celebration of vinyl culture in more than 30 locations

The Haarlem Vinyl Festival is built around the celebration of recorded music, sound experience and the love for vinyl. For three days and nights, the historical city of Haarlem is the canvas for all the stories around vinyl, with programs for all generations in more than 30 locations.

Weekend Passes are on sale at an Early Bird rate at  single event tickets for the concerts and nighttime program are available from May 3rd via Patronaat and PHIL.

Patronaat and PHIL

The Haarlem music venues Patronaat and PHIL play a central role during the Haarlem Vinyl Festival. In addition to the artists announced today, there will be plenty of space for vinyl culture at both locations in the form of talks and interviews, listening sessions, live podcasts, vinyl auctions and much more.
