Sweat Records, one of Miami's most essential shopping stops, is gearing up for its biggest Sweatstock yet. Taking place on Record Store Day, a day each year that celebrates the many keepers of vinyl in this nation, this day-long festival takes place on Saturday, April 18th, with doors opening at 8am and the first of 38 live acts going on at 2pm.
There will be food trucks (Ms. Cheezious, Sugar Yummy Mama, and Nacho Business are some), as well as tons of special record releases, merchandise, and a bike valet by the Green Mobility Network.
Here's a full list of the acts, some local, which will go on at two stages in the Sweat and Churchill's vicinity, including Tobacco, the main headliner. This festival also celebrates the latest issue of Jai-Alai Magazine, a local publication that publishes poetry, fiction, essays, and black and white drawings. Sweatstock is free and open to people of all ages, so grab your best culture loving friends and head there this Saturday.
