Vinyl Keeps On Spinning In 2017
We can't get enough of vinyl here at SixtySix and it looks like we aren't the only ones! There have been some doubters over the last few years but the beloved vinyl format has proven that it won't be disappearing anytime soon as vinyl sales in the UK hit a 25 year high!
The BPI have reported that over 3.2 million LPs were sold in 2016 - 53 per cent on 2015 and the highest number since 1991. This number is certain to continue to grow as more and more music fans pick up their first turntables and embrace events like Record Store Day (which is on 22nd of April this year if you didn't know already).
So on that note we think it is pretty safe to say that 2016 was a great year for music, here's to an even better 2017! Plenty to look forward to already, keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter & Instagram to see what we are working on.
