Record Store Day 2020 postponed

Record Store Day 2020 has been postponed over the coronavirus.

Originally set for April 18, organizers of the celebration of the unique culture surrounding independently owned record stores have revised their plans for this year’s event.

“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,” announced RSD. “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 annual event sees unique and rare releases by artists around the world as part of the celebration, including David Bowie, The Doors, Judas Priest, Clutch, and many others.
