Record Store Day 2021 to take place on Saturday 12th June

The date for Record Store Day 2021 has been confirmed as Saturday 12th June, when independent record shops in the UK and around the world will be stocking another bumper crop of limited edition vinyl.

The annual celebration of all things vinyl usually takes place on the third Saturday of April each year, but it is perhaps of little surprise to see it scheduled for later next year after a heavily disrupted event in 2020.

After 2020’s original date was scuppered due to the worsening global pandemic, the organisers’ first attempt at rescheduling suffered the same fate. It led to Record Store Day 2020 being held over three dates in August, September and October for the first and likely last time.
