The Bathurst Record Fair, originally scheduled for Saturday, April 4, has been postponed to a later date, but organiser Patrick Coomey said there are still ways to share the love of music around.
Mr Coomey, who is based in Orange, operates under the name 100 Mile Groove, an enterprise designed to promote the latest music developments within '100 miles' of Orange, including Bathurst, Dubbo, Cowra and surrounding areas.
In addition to providing an avenue for people to celebrate the love of music and vinyl records, Mr Coomey said the event also plays a role in the promotion of local music.
"With the postponement of the Bathurst Record Fair, I've created a playlist on Spotify featuring music from Central West musicians," he said.
"I strongly encourage music fans to check it out and show their support for local musicians as live performance is a livelihood for most of them, and with the current COVID-19 situation putting a pause on live gigs, they need our support more than ever."
The Record Fair was due to be held in Walshaw Hall, and Mr Coomey said a new date for the event will be announced as soon as the COVID-19 situation starts to improve.
"These events are an opportunity for people in regional areas to enjoy the atmosphere of an inner city record store," he said.
"It's a chance for the community to bond over a shared love of music, and once this situation subsides, we promise the groove will return in full flavour."
