Record Store Day 2024

Record Store Day

“More important than Christmas” – that’s how the L.A. Times described RECORD STORE DAY in the U.S. back in 2011, referring, of course, to the importance of the RSD for the independent record trade – the record store around the corner, which for many seems to have become almost a relic from the distant past. With over 3,000 independent record stores taking part worldwide and, as expected, 500 exclusive RSD releases this year, RECORD STORE DAY is now widely regarded as “the biggest music event in the world”. In Germany, Austria and Switzerland, around 250 record stores take part in the RSD every year. The public and media focus on the participating record stores, plus around 100 record store concerts, parties and evening club events make the day a powerful stimulus for music culture. Internationally as well as regionally. RECORD STORE DAY takes place every year in April! The original idea of Record Store Day was first put into action by Michael Kurtz (as co-founder of RSD in the US) and a handful of enthusiasts in 2007 in the US to tip their hats to the unique culture of indie record stores. “.
