‘Record Store Day’ Has Been Moved To June

March 17, 2020

Record Store Day 2020 was supposed to be this Saturday, April 21. However due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it’s been moved to June 20.


The Record Store Day organizers took to social media, “We’ve decided that the best of all possible moves is to change the date of Record Store Day this year to Saturday, June 20. We think this gives stores around the world the best chance to have a profitable, successful Record Store Day, while taking into consideration the recommendations of doctors, scientists, the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, and the need to be good citizens of both local and worldwide communities.

“We’re working with all of our partners and our stores to make this change as smooth as possible for everyone who participates in Record Store Day: customers, record stores, artists, labels and more. Record Store Day is everywhere and we want to hold our party when everyone can gather around safely to celebrate life, art, music and the culture of the indie record store.”

The first Record Store Day took place on April 19, 2008. Currently there are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica.
