Saturday 18th April would have been Record Store Day 2020 had the Coronavirus pandemic not caused it to be postponed until June. But while we, sadly, won't be spending the day trotting off to our local record shops armed with our wishlist of exclusive Record Store Day albums, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate the beloved vinyl record this weekend. 

You can support independent record shops by ordering vinyl online, or alternatively get involved in the official Record Store Day's #RSDFillTheGap campaign by pledging to buy that missing record from your collection when the shops reopen. 

And we thought we'd get in on the act. You can show your appreciation of the beloved format by taking our vinyl quiz or watching something from our list of vinyl documentaries. We also have plenty of informative vinyl-related features for anyone wishing to up their record game, as well as buying guides for those looking to treat themselves to a new turntable or accessory. So have a scour and get involved!
