Digging for vinyl gems at the Hawaii Record Fair

The 2016 Hawaii Record Fair (New Location!)

The one and only annual gathering of vinyl record dealers and enthusiasts is the Hawaii Record Fair.  And it’s returning to Honolulu in greater glory on Sunday, October 9th, 2016.

Founded in 2012 by the oldest record shop on Oahu—Hungry Ear Records—the fair continues to grow and evolve. This year it’ll forgo its regular venue for a much-welcomed move to the Ala Moana Hotel’s Garden Lanai ballroom. Thank goodness, because this means air-conditioning! Hungry Ear had us in mind when they looked back on those sweaty few years digging in the stagnant heat of the McKinley High School cafeteria.

Admission is still crazy affordable, so there’s no reason not to attend General admission is just $5, early admission is $8 and gets you in at 9am.

Aloha Got Soul is proud to offer records and merch for sale at this year’s Hawaii Record Fair. Here’s what we’ll have in stock:

  • Strut Records x Aloha Got Soul compilation (vinyl & CD)
  • Aura LP & 45
  • Mike Lundy 45s & LP (limited stock!)
  • Al Nobriga 45
  • AGS and Soul Time t-shirts
  • AGS slipmats
