Mega Record & CD Fair
Catwalk Covers Exhibition and Dutch Beat Special
On April 9th & 10th 2011, the Jaarbeurs Centre in Utrecht will showcase the 35th Mega Record & CD Fair.
This renowned worldwide event has built it’s reputation over the years on the quality and variety of its dealers
coming from over 50 countries. It is the place to be for vinyl connoisseurs, with exhibitions, autograph sessions, and
live performances. The show offers the greatest vinyl collection in the world. Visitors may well bump into famous
artists, looking for their own original catalogue or for albums worth up to 20.000 euro.
At this edition the Mega Record & CD Fair is proud to host the Catwalk Covers exhibition, featuring 60 years of
fashion on album covers. Other main attractions include the launch of the Dutch Beat encyclopaedia and the new
Nederbeat 10cd compilation. This last event will come alive on the day, with many surprise guests and live
performances.




Catwalk Covers are exhibiting 60 years of fashion on album covers, carefully selected from Marius Quist’s enormous
vinyl collection. Quist, is the proud owner of over 80,000 albums from the forties to the present day and from Metal to
Lady GaGa. Reminisce about beat fashion or flower power, the anti fashion of punk or its polar opposite - disco
clothing with lace and ruches. There will be a special focus on style icons such as Madonna and Debbie Harry (Blondie).

                   We will be launching the 1st Dutch Record Catalogue compiled by author and musician Rob Kopp. It
                   contains over 2200 entries, including images, biographies, member lists and very detailed descriptions
                   of Dutch artists and groups. The catalogue is presented in two sections and has over 1000 pages
                   written in both English and Dutch and is a must have for all collectors.
                   Alongside Kopp’s catalogue, BR Music will be presenting their brand new 10 cd box Nederbeat at the
                   fair. Dutch musicians - Rudy Bennet, Artie Kraayeveld and many others will perform live to celebrate
