Record Store Day is an internationally celebrated day observed on the third Saturday of April each year.
About the day
The day came into being in 2007 when over 700 independent stores in the USA came together to celebrate their unique culture. The UK followed suit and 2013 was the sixth celebration of the UK's unique independent sector.
This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, meet and greets with artists, DJ's, in store quizzes and many other events.
