Record Store Day
29th April 2020: In 2020, the world is a different place. And for that reason, Record Store Day has had to adapt to fit into this different place.
Record Store Day will unfortunately no longer be taking place on June 20th.
Instead, the titles on the RSD 2020 official list will be available from from the shop on one of the three following RSD “Drop” Dates: Saturday 29th August, Saturday 26th September and Saturday 24th October.
A new version of “The List” with assigned release dates will be launched on 1st June and updates will be found on our blog, social media and newsletter.
Record Store Day 2020--originally scheduled for April 18 -was bound to look and feel different from any of the previous twelve. Prior events have been as much about the gatherings, parties, concerts and “group hang” element of a celebration as the financial bonus for the record shops.
However, in this unprecedented situation, the focus of these three RSD Drop dates is on supporting the stores, as well as the artists, labels, distribution and every other business behind the scenes making record stores work.
This current RSD 2020 plan to spread the spotlight and the support over three months, was made with as much available information as possible, and gives the largest number of stores a chance to participate globally in the strangest Record Store Day ever. RSD will be using the guidance of government and scientific experts to ensure these RSD Drop dates are as socially responsible and safe for all involved as possible. Don't necessarily expect all the normal in-store celebrations and events as these changes have been made to allow customers to get the RSD product safely in a socially distanced world.
Fingers crossed for the return of the biggest party of the year on the third Saturday of April 2021. RSD Black Friday is still being planned and is scheduled to take place on November 27
We are aware that this is an ever-changing situation that brings new challenges every day.
