    Record Store Day has been set as April 21st, 2018. The full press release can be found below.

    The eleventh annual worldwide party that celebrates the culture of the indie record store is set for Saturday, April 21, 2018. Stores around the world will open up their doors to celebrate with their customers, the musicians who make the music they sell, and the staff who sell it.
    In its first ten years, Record Store Day (the Day) has grown exponentially and is now celebrated by millions of people, in thousands of independent record stores, worldwide. It has spurred the growth of at least one physical media format, inspired new stores to open their doors, and helped existing stores to grow and expand. Thousands of artists have celebrated with performances, in-store events and limited edition special releases. Unknown numbers of people have had a damn good time at their local record store.

    In that time Record Store Day (the Organization) has also grown, now working year-round to promote indie record stores and innovate to allow those who run them to improve their business. RSD’s Black Friday, RSD Vinyl Club, Vinyl Tuesday, and individual release promotions for all genres are part of what RSD does regularly.

    In August 2018, RSD will host their third Summer Camp, a conference just for the special type of small business that is the indie record store. Record Store Day is also a founding partner of Making Vinyl, the world’s first conference devoted to the vinyl format.

    Still to come this year are the announcement of the Record Store Day 2018 Ambassador and the list of special, limited edition releases available at a record store on April 21, 2018. Follow Record Store Day at recordstoreday.com or on social media (@recordstoreday on Twitter, @RecordStoreDay on Facebook and @recordstoredayus on Instagram) to keep up with all the exciting party details to come!

    Let's hope for some releases more akin to 2010-2013 releases AKA releases people actually give a shit about
