Record Store Day UK – Saturday 13th April 2019

Posted On 01 Mar 2019 at 9:17 pm

The wait for Sussex vinyl junkies is nearly over as Record Store Day is fast approaching. This year it will be taking place on Saturday 13th April.

It’s the one day of the year when over 200 independent record shops all across the UK come together to celebrate their unique culture. Special vinyl releases are made exclusively for the day and many shops and cities host artist performances and events to mark the occasion. Thousands more shops celebrate the day around the globe in what’s become one of the biggest annual events on the music calendar.

Once again this year there are 100’s of wonderful limited edition records to choose from by established artists including David Bowie, Elton John, Elvis Presley, and Rolling Stones with emerging talents such as IDLES, Our Girl, Say Sue Me, and Soccer Mommy. The records will be available in every colour imaginable, including picture discs, whether it be 7”, 12” or other formats such as 10”.

If your selected limited edition vinyl releases are collectable, then you need to get up early and stand in line prior to your chosen participating store opening its doors. However previous to that you should have already checked that your chosen store has managed to secure several copies of said platter(s), otherwise you would have sadly wasted your time and missed out.

So what’s on offer this year?
