With just days until the 11th Record Store Day Australia, stores across the country are gearing up for one of their busiest days of the year on Saturday 21 April 2018. This annual event reiterates the importance of the traditional music outlet as one of the major avenues for the public to discover the many genres of music releases each year.
Record Store Day is a once-a-year unmissable day for all music lovers. This year it’s celebrating 11 years with a record number of participating indie record stores. More than 190 indie music stores across Australia will throw open their doors to live music, DJs spinning the vinyl, treasure hunts, parties, barbecues, coffee carts, face painting and, of course, the legendary vinyl crate digging.
The indie record store is a community hub for music lovers: a place to find new music, reconnect with old and new music from old friends, get great advice and recommendations, hear musicians live, find out what’s happening in the local music scene, and generally hang out with people who love music as much as you do.
The 2018 Record Store Day will be held on Saturday 21 April 2018. For more information and a comprehensive list of events across the country, visit: www.recordstoreday.com.au for details.
