First conceived in 2007, Record Store Day has become an internationally recognised institution which is dedicated to celebrating the beauty of physical music platforms (in particular, vinyl). On Saturday the 22nd, independent record stores from all around the world will participate in celebrating the 10th edition of Record Store Day.

A ‘record store day’ will typically involve: exclusive releases from you favourite artists, live music performed in store, the chance to meet and greet; and most importantly, buying records! Given that there are participating stores on every continent except Antarctica”, us Australians can look forward to getting involved this Record Store Day.
