Record Store Day gathers momentum

The UK’s sixth Record Store Day takes place tomorrow (Saturday 20 April) and promises to be the biggest event to date. Record labels have produced more than 500 different vinyl, CD, DVD releases that will only be available in limited quantities in the 200+ participating independent record shops.

Special events are also being held to draw in record buyers up and down the country. Paul Weller will be performing a special show at the Rough Trade East shop in London, while Berwick Street in London’s Soho will be closed to traffic to host a music festival. Away from the capital, The Wedding Present will be appearing Oxford’s Truck Store, while Glasvegas will be performing at Avalanche in Edinburgh.

Record Store Day was originally launched in the USA in 2007 to fight back against the decline in independent record shops, which have been hit by the move to online shopping and the shift to electronic downloads, both legal and illegal. The annual event has grown to become an international celebration of the traditional joys of rifling through the racks and purchasing CDs and vinyl records.
