Record Store Day

2020 Record Store Day Delayed Again, Will Now Be Held Across Three Different Dates


0

Traditionally the annual ‘Record Store Day‘ event is held in the month of April, but as you’re well aware by now, there’s been little traditional about 2020. Having already once been pushed back to June 20th amid concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, the music event has now been splintered into three events across scattered months.

Rather that one event, this year’s releases will now be spread across August 29th, September 26th and October 24th. Select titles will be arriving on select dates with an updated list to be unveiled on June 01st. The organizers behind the annual event commented of the change:

‘Since 2008, Record Store Day has grown into the world’s largest single-day music event, shining a light on the culture of the indie record store across the globe. In 2020, that world is different, so Record Store Day will be too. RSD is now scheduled to be celebrated with special, properly distanced release dates on Saturdays in August, September and October.

Record Store Day will look very different this year, but supporting indie record stores may be more important than ever. We don’t know what sort of rules will be in place, or what sort of gatherings people will be in the mood for this year, so we’re focusing on the music and getting the really great titles on the RSD Official List this year into the stores and into your hands, in the most financially and socially responsible way.

The titles on the RSD 2020 Official List, launched on March 5th, will be released at participating record stores on one of these three RSD Drops: August 29th, September 26th, and October 24th. The new version of The List, with newly assigned RSD Drops dates will launch on June 1 so check back here for a look at when you’ll be able to pick up the titles on your RSD 2020 wishlist at your local record store.’
