To support the biggest vinyl event in the music calendar, RSD is also delighted to see the return of the four much-loved Record Store Day partners at the very heart of independence and vinyl in the UK: Bowers & Wilkins, Rega Research, Sound Performance and Meantime Brewing Company – we will of course be keeping an eye out for this years' official RSD beer
