21 APRIL 2018

It is now two weeks until the 11th Record Store Day Australia and stores around the country are gearing up for one of their busiest days of the year.

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.

Record Store Day is a once-a-year unmissable day for all music lovers. This year it’s celebrating 11 years with a record number of participating indie record stores. Set for Saturday 21 April more than 190 indie music stores around Australia will throw open their doors to live music, DJs spinning the vinyl, treasure hunts, parties, barbecues, coffee carts, face painting and, of course, the legendary vinyl crate digging.

The indie record store is a community hub for music lovers: a place to find new music, reconnect with old and new music from old friends, get great advice and recommendations, hear musicians live, find out what’s happening in the local music scene, and generally hang out with people who love music as much as you do.

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