Now on to its 46th edition, the Mega Record & CD Fair returns to Utrecht this weekend (12th & 13th November).

The event features over 500 record dealers from across the globe with over 12,500 square metres of floor space almost entirely dedicated to vinyl. Some 35,000 collectors are expected to attend.

The special guest at this edition will be author Clinton Heylin, who is known for several books on Bob Dylan and will autograph his latest book JUDAS!: From Forest Hills to the Free Trade Hall: A Historical View of Dylan’s Big Boo.

This edition also coincides with the Le Guess Who? festival, which will host Julia Holter, Wilco, Tortoise, Savages, Tim Hecker, Swans, Dinosaur Jr. and plenty more.

The event takes place at the Jaarbeurs Convention Centre in Utrecht. See photos below from last year’s event below:
