Record Store Day, the vinyl party that according to its organisers has become the largest single day music event in the world, has finalised a date. Mark your diaries for 23rd April, 2022.
What Hi-Fi? is very much looking forward to the 15th annual celebration of bricks-and-mortar record shops and the records we buy from them, which last year saw some fantastic Record Store Day releases and even a free docuseries celebrating UK indie record store owners.
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.
Stay tuned to What Hi-Fi? for updates on RSD releases for 2022 and if you desperately need a physical music fix in the meantime, there's always our where to buy vinyl feature.
Also, don't forget RSD offers £25 and £50 gift vouchers now that can be spent before or during the event – an ideal holiday gift for the vinyl lover in your life.
