Independent record stores across London's Berwick Street in Soho have announced plans for a series of special events for Record Store Day next month.

As well as selling exclusive vinyl and CD releases, independent stores on the famous stretch, which was the scene of the 1995 Oasis album cover for '(What's The Story) Morning Glory' (pictured), will showcase a range of British music talent on April 20, from 12-7pm. These events will include a special appearance from a cult rock band and a punk/folk singer-songwriter as well as an eclectic mix of solo artists, bands and DJs across all genres from reggae to electronica.

On the day, the market will feature a music history experience from The Museum of Soho, a vinyl fair and the official film of Record Store Day, Last Shop Standing, which charts the rise, fall and rebirth of the independent record shop will be screened on the day in a pop-up cinema space. Graham Jones, the author of the book that inspired the film will also make a special guest appearance for a Q&A and sign copies of the book and DVD.

Berwick Street has been a destination for vinyl record collectors since the 1980s when it became known as 'The Golden Mile of Vinyl'. This corner of Soho is still home to central London’s largest concentration of thriving independent record shops including Reckless Records, Sister Ray and The Music and Video Exchange as well as Sounds of the Universe around the corner on Broadwick Street, Black Market Soho on D’Arblay Street and Phonica on Poland Street.

Paul McCartney and David Bowie are among the artists who are putting out special releases as part of Record Store Day this year with The Black Keys, Pulp, and a split release from Garbage and Screaming Females among the highlights on the exhaustive list. Pulp will release a Soulwax remix of their new single 'After You' on 12" vinyl.

Also included on the list are special releases from The xx, a Grizzly Bear remix by Brian Eno, James Blake, Disclosure, Mystery Jets, Peace, Frank Turner, Jimi Hendrix and Mystery Jets as well as new music from MGMT released on the 'Alien Days' cassette. Paul Weller has recorded two new songs, 'Flame Out' and 'The Old Original', to be released while a special mystery 7" will also be available.
