Record Store Day 2021 to take place on June 12

Record Store Day can today announce that the 2021 edition of the event will take place on Saturday 12 June.

The annual event traditionally takes place on the third Saturday in April, however 2021 will see the celebration taking on a later spot in the music calendar.

Record Store Day, supported by BBC Sounds, is the one day of the year when hundreds of record shops in the UK (and thousands more around the globe!) come together to celebrate their unique and independent culture and the art of vinyl. Special vinyl releases are made exclusively for the day with parties and live performances taking place in record shops all over the world.
