7th Seoul Record Fair Limited Releases

The 7th annual Seoul Record Fair will take place during the weekend of June 17-18 at Seoul Innovation Park. Just like last year the event offers sales of limited edition vinyl pressed especially for the event as well as a set of strictly limited edition cassette tapes.

Vinyl

The vinyl trend has definitely grabbed a foothold in Korea over the past few years with new vinyl releases now showing up with some frequency throughout the year. Seoul Record Fair was early to catch on and continues to bring exciting offers also this year.

Exclusive Releases

One of the definite highlights of the Seoul Record Fair is the availability of releases exclusive to the fair. These typically sell out during the record fair itself–sometimes even in its very first day–but if they don’t lucky fans might be able to find a copy in their independent Korean record store of choice a bit later. All of the vinyl below has been manufactured in the Czech Republic.
