Vinyl collector Kim Williams said he worked in music stores for most of his life.

“I buy new vinyl from overseas wholesalers and used vinyl either from overseas contacts or local people who want to sell their collection,” he said.

“Many classic LPs will be up for grabs either new or used including Beatles’ Rubber Soul, Jimi Hendrix’s Are You Experienced?, Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds plus vinyl by more contemporary artists such as King Gizzard, The Black Keys, and The White Stripes.

“All music formats have their uses but if you want to enjoy music and experience the full spectrum of sound as the musicians intended, vinyl is best.

“There is more dynamic range from music on vinyl than any other format.”

Meanwhile, one of the live acts, Delilah Rose Trio will perform on the main stage at 3pm.

Vocalist Dee Walsh said she could not wait to celebrate the people living in the suburb where she had lived in for six years.

“I’m looking forward to meeting more locals,” she said.

“I would describe my music as 70s alt-country with a side of flares and big hair.

“The diversity in our community tapestry is what makes us stronger and live music is such a great way to celebrate.”
