The Bay Area Record Fair, commonly known as BARF, is a free gathering of some of the best, most passionate, of-utmost-importance local indie record companies, recording studios, and people who dedicate their lives to music. It’s also curated by some of the most passionate people (Father/Daughter Records and Professional Fans, to name some of the angels) who have truly dedicated themselves to making this an event you’d get really emo over missing. They took a little hiatus, but now BARF is back and better than ever. Special thanks to their partners — Noise Pop, Amoeba Music, Different Fur Studios, U-Turn Audio, and Vinyl Me, Please.
BARF is one of those events that reminds our community that it doesn’t have to fear the death of local music, nor stay in cliques: We can join together to make something great and accessible. And there’s nothing more accessible than a free fair with:
- Over 30 independent record labels in attendance!
- Amoeba Music, Western Relics, 1-2-3-4 Go! selling used vinyl, CDs, cassettes!
- Guest DJs spinning throughout the day!
- Two huge prize packs being raffled off including Different Fur studio time, U-Turn Audio turntable, Vinyl Me, Please subscriptions & more!
