Happy Record Store Day! Whether you've been queuing up for hours to snag that latest release or just ambling towards you local store to crate dig, or spinning some records at home – here's to a day (or weekend) of enjoying music.

We've been celebrating all things vinyl this week in anticipation of this day (it's the 17th annual RSD this year!) and have brought you exclusive reviews, tips on setting up your turntable and storing your records, interviews with pressing plants in Australia and record stores in London, musings about vinyl trends and the younger generation's fascination with record playing, and many more.

We've also been sharing the first vinyl records that team What Hi-Fi? bought with our own money, our favourite songs from this year's RSD ambassador Kate Bush, highlight the best turntables we've come across in our publication's 48-year history, and give advice on setting up your turntable, storing your records safely and tips on buying second-hand vinyl.

Our Vinyl Week 2024 runs from Monday 15th April to Sunday 21st April, and you can check out all the features, advice and reviews by browsing the highlights and headlines in the list below.
