(Inside Manila) After the unprecedented success of its first edition, “Back to Mono,” an event that features and celebrates premium Japanese-pressed vinyl, is coming back to Manila for another nostalgic day and night to remember.

Music enthusiasts are in for a one-of-a-kind vinyl record pop-up experience as Back2Mono is moving to a bigger venue, The Alley at Karrivin, on April 14 to 15, from 2 p.m. onwards. This year’s theme is “Dance Music History,” and true enough, guests will be dancing to classic disco, house, techno, and rave hits.

There will be a pop-up record store for those looking for a new addition to their vinyl collections. Among those you can purchase are from DJs Johnny Hiller (Hong Kong, London) and Toti Dalmacion (Manila), and audiophile Hiro “Chiga” Koneko (Tokyo).

A music-themed flea market will be selling pre-loved items such as sound equipment, shirts, stickers, and much more. And in case you’re wondering, food and drinks will be served at the Bar & Kitchen for the whole day.

Culminating the event is a dance party featuring all-vinyl DJ sets from Miller, Dalmacion, and Fukuda. It will be a trip down memory lane as you dance to the influential tunes from the early 70s, 80s, and 90s. Dig deep for record gems and dance the night away!

The Alley at Karrivin Plaza is at Chino Roces Ave., Makati City. For more information, visit Back2Mono on Facebook.
