Event details

The 11th Record Store Day will take place on Saturday 21st April 2018.

Over the last 10 years, the event has become one of the most eagerly anticipated and important events for vinyl fans up and down the country. In 2017, over 500 artists released limited edition vinyl products available exclusively in over 200 participating stores. 2018’s releases are to be revealed in early March.

The success of the event has sparked a huge turnaround in fortunes for the nation’s independent record stores, with new shops opening at nearly one a week since last year’s Record Store Day.

And the vinyl boom continues as the latest industry market statistics from the Entertainment Retailers Association show vinyl sales growing for the10th year by a further 34% in 2017 to a £88m business.

Record Store Day is delighted to reveal the music-loving brands that are supporting the indie record shop community in 2018 are:

Rega Research returns as our Official Turntable and Audio Partner for the 4th year running. Rega will once again be pleasing audiophiles with a one-off design for a limited edition Record Store Day turntable. The turntable will be available exclusively from participating stores with a special surprise for a limited number of buyers.

We are also excited to welcome Sound Performance as our first ever Official Vinyl Manufacturing Partner. Over the coming weeks Record Store Day & Sound Performance will be launching a competition to support the UK’s best unsigned talent. Chris Marksberry, Managing Director of Sound Performance, said, “The re-birth of vinyl has given the music industry a new dynamism and Record Store Day has played a crucial role in bringing the format back. We share the values of Record Store Day and the support they give to independent record stores, record labels and the industry as a whole. We would like to wish Record Store Day and all the UK’s amazing record stores and record labels a successful 2018.”

Friels Cider are supporting this year’s event as our first ever Official Cider Partner and will soon be launching a limited edition promotional can available nationwide. Friels will also be running social competitions and supporting launch parties in record stores around the UK. Keep an eye on the Record Store Day website for more details.

And finally, after the success of the exclusive Fred Perry record bags in 2017 we are delighted to announce they will be returning with all new limited edition tote bags for this year’s event. More Fred Perry activity will also be revealed in due course.

It's more a uk wide thing than Llandudno specific event


Q. What is Record Store Day (RSD)
A. It 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 host 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

But as you say not much going on this way

The nearest store taking part it seems is 30 miles away from us
