A day to promote the joys of vinyl and the independent shops around the UK that sell records.

Record Store Day in United Kingdom in 2024

Pop star Kate Bush has been announced as an ambassador for this year's Record Store Day, on April 20th.

Bush said it was a "great privilege" to support the initiative, which champions independent record shops and vinyl collectors across the UK.

"Isn't it great to see how the resurgence in vinyl has taken the music industry by surprise?" she said.

"It had decided to leave vinyl far behind, but it would seem that not everyone agrees! I love that!"

She added: "I know there are many, many artists who are just as excited to see the audience turning the tide."

This year's Record Store Day will see hundreds of limited edition, one-off albums and singles released, with titles by David Bowie, The 1975, Olivia Rodrigo, Notorious BIG, The Beatles, De La Soul and Gorillaz amongst the most sought-after items.

As an ambassador, Bush will help to promote the event - which often generates long queues of record collectors, as well as in-store performances and other special events.

Record Store Day is the one day of the year when over 200 independent record shops all across the UK come together to celebrate their unique culture. Special vinyl releases are made exclusively for the day and many shops and cities host artist performances and events to mark the occasion. Thousands more shops celebrate the day around the globe in what’s become one of the biggest annual events on the music calendar.

Although there’s only one Record Store Day a year, we also work throughout the year to celebrate our independent record stores by spotlighting exclusive releases, events and special news.
