The Vinyl Factory magazine is the home of vinyl, covering the best of contemporary record culture, from new releases and reissues to turntables and tech.

Launched in 2013, our coverage aims to select the most vital and ground-breaking new music available on vinyl, tell the stories behind classic and cult releases, and shed light on those corners of recorded music history that don’t get the attention they deserve.

The magazine also aims to be a platform for independent labels, shops and the broader vinyl community, bringing together artists, record collectors and fans through their shared love of music.
