Axpona Canceled!!!

Breaking news from JD Events — AXPONA 2020: Cancelled.

April 30, 2020

Dear AXPONA Community;

It is with heartfelt disappointment but concern for the health and safety of all AXPONA participants that we announce today the official cancellation of AXPONA 2020 due to the impact of COVID-19. We thank everyone who had committed to making the 2020 event into what would have been the largest and most attended AXPONA in history. Although there remains over three months until our August dates, we do not feel 100% confident that we can provide a safe environment for all of our customers and press to network and do business in Schaumburg by that date.

We are reaching out directly to exhibitors, sponsors and attendees this morning with further details. These are enormously challenging times for everyone’s personal and business lives but let us stay strong, caring and united. The industry will come through this together and it will be a better and safer world on the other side. We look forward to hosting a celebratory AXPONA for the ages when we all meet again in 2021.

Newvelle Records announces new series!

From the studio to your turntable

We are building an association of like minded music lovers, interested in acquiring new music available solely on vinyl. Our model treats musicians right and uses the full available canvas of vinyl to make something unique and beautiful.

We set out to build a series of records, of all new music, that cut no corners sonically or artistically. Each year Newvelle records and releases 6 records, exclusively on vinyl and with curated artwork and literature. We built a model that treats musicians right and uses the full available canvas of vinyl to make something unique and beautiful.

By ordering these records and supporting this model, you are creating a space where music can be recorded at this level. Musicians grant us a window of a few years when the music is available only at Newvelle and only on vinyl. Our model is based on building an exclusive community interested in hearing this music in the best possible presentation.
