Record Store Day 2016 – Releases Announced

The Record Store Day 2016 list of exclusive releases has just been unveiled over on the Record Store Day UK website. Now in it’s ninth year, RSD 2016 takes place on the 16th April and is already shaping up to be the best ever with a strong lineup of releases and in-store events being announced across the country. Earlier in the year RSD announced a new partnership with BBC Music which will see special programming will take place across the BBC’s radio networks, and in particular on BBC Radio 6 Music.

Record Store Day is the one day of the year when over 200 independent record shops all across the UK come together to celebrate their unique culture. Special vinyl releases are made exclusively for the day and many shops and cities host artist performances and events to mark the occasion. Thousands more shops celebrate the day around the globe in what’s become one of the biggest annual events on the music calendar. The first Record Store Day was officially kicked off by Metallica in San Francisco in 2008 and is now held every third Saturday in April.
