Scene News: Record Store Day – This Coming Saturday 21 April

This coming Saturday, 21 April Record Stores across the country will celebrate the 11th Record Store Day
with lots of special in-store activity, special releases, in-store appearances, parties, DJs spinning vinyl,
treasure hunts, parties, barbecues, coffee carts, face painting and some stores partying into the night.
This annual event reiterates the importance of the traditional music outlet as one of the major avenues for
the public to discover the many genres of music releases each year, with around 50,000 music lovers visiting
their favourite store to take part in the day

It is about celebrating your local Indie Record Store and its place in the world of music. There are so many artists making music that never gets radio play. The local indie store helps spread the word, they play that music instore, the bands play live in-store, they stock the CDs and vinyl and Limited Edition pressings of records are available from major labels through to the bands organising it themselves.

Information about what is happening in each store is regularly added to the Australian website and social
media. Record Store Day Ambassadors Michael Chugg, Dan Sultan and Amber Lawrence are all available
for interviews.

There will be over 190 stores taking part in the day with around 600 Limited Edition Releases from Record

Record Store Day is an international event held in over 30 nations around the world,
celebrating indie record stores and their place in their local music community. Stores showcase live
performances from local and international musicians, throw parties, host DJ sets, throw snags on the
barbie, run competitions and draws, raid their vaults for vinyl, CD and memorabilia treasures, open the
bar, offer discounts across the store, source special purchase buys often from overseas, and supply the
legendary limited edition vinyl which is pressed specially for the day.
In Australia, Record Store Day is organised by AMRA (the Australian Music Retailers Association) with
additional funding from the major record companies and like-minded sponsors such as Pro-Ject, which is
the official turntable partner.
