Featuring dozens of record dealers, hundreds of crates of records, live DJ sets, film screenings and special musical guests in the Dome Theatre. Come join other vinyl enthusiasts in digging through some crates, watch a concert in the Dome Theatre, sprawl out in a bean bag chair and listen to Fermata's wall of speakers - all of Artisphere will be a celebration of sound on Sunday!  In addition to other special programming in the Dome Theatre, Artisphere will present a special 2:30pm screening of Led Zeppelin Played Here followed by a talk with director, Jeff Krulik and musician/ Dischord Records co-owner, Ian MacKaye.

Produced by Brendan Canty and directed by Christoph Green.  A Conversation with Chad Clark / 12:30 - 1:15 Chad Clark is a musician, producer and mastering engineer whose fingerprints can be found on a list of records too long to mention, having worked with seminal bands such as Fugazi and The Dismemberment Plan.
