Many of the stores listed in the maps are participating in Record Store Day – with live performances, exclusive Record Store Day releases, instore signings, DJs, local legends and more. Check your local guides and street press for the full rundown. The record stores behind these maps will also be celebrating Record Store Day. Northside Records in Melbourne has the usual onslaught of soul goodness, featuring international sensation Hiatus Kaiyote, Brunswick sensations The Putbacks ,and a full day of DJs, music and soul. The Record Store in Darlinghurst is also turning up the heat with a day of DJs, special guests and storewide specials ( Street Party Alert! )
Website updates will also coincide with Record Store Day – with a new Sydney site coming this week (www.digginsydney.com), plus a full update to our Melbourne site. Watch this space.
Sydney’s new map features 22 stores across the city and inner suburbs; Melbourne presents the biggest listing yet with 53 stores. That’s a lot of records! Copies of the maps are available at all good record stores, and most places that music matters ie. your local bar/cafe. Dig!
Word is out – there’s vinyl in Sydney too!

Everyone knows that vinyl is king! It sounds better, feels good and looks great. What’s more – lots of the music we love is still only available in this format, forever sounding as musicians, producers and engineers intended it to sound when conceiving, recording and manufacturing these amazing pieces of art!

The new 2012 map has been distributed to most of the stores listed, as well as various other locations. The complete website version of the 2012 Map will be available for download in upcoming days.
