Shifting Plates Record Fair

Shifting Plates Record Fair is a Fault Radio production powered by Intersection For The Arts. Approximately 30 record vendors
participated at our annual fair featuring the Bay Area’s leading record stores together with known local dealers. After a long
hiatus, this year we came back stronger than ever with a 3rd edition of Shifting Plates Record Fair at the San Francisco Ferry

This year our record vendors sold vinyl in an array of genres. Local DJs–Alvaro Z, Cherub 420, Infinite Jess, and Soulfunky x Fusion
set the vibes, playing records from their collections throughout the day. There were also giveaways with prizes such as Audio Technica turntables, slipmats, records, Ortofon needles, and many more.
