Here’s what your local record shop is doing for Record Store Day 2016

[Words: Matt Ayres]

For those who know that vinyl really does sound better, Record Store Day is pretty much Christmas.

Independent music shops around the world will be celebrating on Saturday 16 April by hosting in-store gigs, stocking rare records and generally reminding everyone why we still need physical shops packed with brilliant music, rather than relying on pre-made Spotify playlists and leaked tracks uploaded to YouTube.

With all sorts going on up and down the UK, we’ve cut through the noise and located the most ear-pleasing events happening around the nation.
