You can find out more information on the official Record Store Day website.

The standard Record Store Day event took place across two months, June 12 and July 17, this year, with 250 stores across the UK taking part. The latter increased vinyl LP sales in July above 100,000 units.

In July, the owner of HMV said the chain of record stores would “love to play a part in Record Store Day”. “There are plenty of areas in the UK where our participation in Record Store Day would be advantageous to those people, because we’ve got stores in a lot of places where there aren’t independent shops,” Managing Director Phil Halliday added.

“I think it would be great for the [music] fan if we were part of Record Store Day. The Canadian stores participate and it is something that we would like to do.”
