Around a hundred lots of rare and collectible vinyl are to be auctioned off in aid of Brit Trust on 5th May, 2021.
Fancy some rare vinyl? The White Label Auction in Aid of The Brit Trust is returning on Wednesday 5th May with around 100 lots of rare vinyl for you to get your mitts on.
With test pressings up for sale from the likes of Blondie, The Beastie Boys, The Who, PJ Harvey, and T.Rex to name a few, there’s plenty up for grabs from big artists spread over many decades.
White-label test pressings have always been a favourite of vinyl aficionados, usually being early prints of records that haven’t been released to the public, usually without cover art or any defining features. The collectibility comes from the rarity and the possibility to have a slice of history from an artist you love.
Many of the UK’s major and independent record labels have come together to provide this broad range of while-label items for the auction, including Universal Music, Warner Records, Sony Music Entertainment, BMG, Cherry Red, and many more.
The aim of the auction is to raise vital funds for the work of music industry charity The Brit Trust which is needed more than ever due to the pandemic’s devastating effect on the music industry over the last year. The trust promotes wellbeing and education through music and supports charities such as The BRIT School, Nordoff-Robbins music therapy, and East London Arts and Music.
The auction takes place before this year’s BRIT awards ceremony set to take place on 11th May which is going to be one of the first live audience events as part of covid event trials. The BRIT Awards are one of the main avenues that The BRIT Trust uses to raise money for all the good work it does throughout the music industry.
The auction will be hosted live online through the website of vinyl record specialists, Omega Auctions, which is based in the UK from 11:00 GMT. For a full list of the items up for sale, head over to the Omega Auctions website.
