Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent
record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the
word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1000 independently
owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores
internationally. This is a day for the people who make up the world of
the record store – the staff, the customers, and the artists – to come
together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the
special role these independently owned stores play in their communities.
Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are
made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United
States and in various countries across the globe make special
appearances and performances.
