20 April - Record Store Day
Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. The first Record Store Day took place on April 19, 2008. Today there are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica. Throughout its more years, cities across the United States, including New York City, Los Angeles, Boise, Charleston, Raleigh and Las Vegas have declared Record Store Day an official holiday.
Established in 1894, the Spillers Records recognised as the oldest record store in the world. Other shops celebrating the Record Store Day UK include Banquet Records in Kingston-Upon-Thames, Defend Vinyl in Liverpool, Monorail Music in Glasgow and Piccadilly Records in Manchester.
For several years, 60% or more of the Record Store Day Official Release List came from independent labels and distributors. Even during a pandemic, record stores proved essential to their community.
