Record Store Day was due to take place on Saturday 18 April this year, but now has been moved to Saturday 20 June instead, as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
Read their official statement below.
Record Store Day is 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 The Cure, David Bowie, The Doors, Elton John, Elvis Presley, The Fall, Gary Numan, Killing Joke, Madness, New Order, Ramones, The Rolling Stones, U2 and The Who with emerging talents such as The Big Moon, The Murder Capital, and Snapped Ankles. 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?
