PUT A LOCAL RECORD DOWN: Challenge 5 mates to listen to a local vinyl release
Local, independent niche record labels have been hit hard by the pandemic. From being unable to throw events and parties in celebration of their releases, delays in vinyl pressing and shipping, restrictions in income and a heap more, some of our most dedicated community members have been unable to spread their message of music. To spread some wholesome messaging and support local, we are asking you to shoutout your favourite local independent release.
The task is simple, head to your Instagram story, and record a quick snap of you putting down a favourite local release from a local artist or record label. Off the back of it, tag 5 mates and @purplesneakers to do the same.
Spread the love, energy and shoutout some of the quiet heroes of our independent scenes that are doing it tough this lockdown.
