The DC Record Fair returns to Artisphere, this Sunday, 6/1!

So, here’s a good reason to follow us both on Facebook and Twitter—we’re prone to scoop ourselves. It’s true, those of you who do check in with us on your social media platform of choice will see this announcement as a bit of old news, but here goes regardless—The DC Record Fair makes a return trip over the bridge to our friends at Artisphere in Arlington, VA on Sunday, June 1!

The DC Record Fair—now in its 5th year—will bring with it the trove of attractions you’d anticipate by now: 35+ vendors from up and down the East Coast, the curated DJ line up, the bar, the food, and Zeke’s Coffee will be on site with a special blend just for the DC Record Fair!

11:00 – 12:00:  Singh Slim
12:00 – 1:00:  Sol Power All Stars
1:00 – 2:00:  Dj Jeyone
2:00 – 3:00:  Sir Ramases
3:00 – 4:00:  The Caribbean
4:00 – 5:00: Rusty B (All Good Funk Alliance)

The summer the DC Record Fair is also presented in tandem with Artisphere’s exhibition entitled Fermata, “…Artisphere’s first exhibition dedicated entirely to sound and the largest of its kind in the region to date. Featuring nearly 30 artists,Fermata takes an expansive approach and is a celebration of individuals using sound in a variety of disciplines, from composer Ryuichi Sakamoto to NASA Kepler scientist Lucianne Walkowicz.

Centered around a wall of speakers designed by sound artist John Henry Blatter that will be used by all participants in the show, Fermata will unfold in three parts, or movements, each featuring a different combination of six to ten sound works that will cycle continuously for a month. Each Movement will play on a continuous loop with no two works playing simultaneously in the gallery; each piece will utilize every functioning speaker on the wall, allowing playback of multi-channel audio works. Fermata will conclude with Coda, a collaboration with Transformer as part of their annual Exercises program for emerging artists.”

Also on Sunday, 6/2, Artisphere will present a special 2:30pm screening of Led Zeppelin Played Here, followed by a talk with director, Jeff Krulik and musician/Dischord Records co-owner, Ian MacKaye—which is free with your DC Record Fair admission!
