Record Store Day 2020

2020 ‘Record Store Day’ Pushed Back To June


0

This year’s ‘Record Store Day‘ event has officially been moved for June 20th in light of Coronavirus concerns. The annual event was originally scheduled for April 18th. Organizers behind it commented of the move:

“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.”
