Today is Record Store Day 2018 - 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, work carries on throughout the year to celebrate independent record stores by spotlighting exclusive releases, events and special news. For today's 2018 RSD events and participating stores go here.
