Everything you need to know about Record Store Day at Rough Trade...

We're back to do it all over again in 2024 (and with a new family member), one of the best days of the year in the independent record store calendar returns this Saturday 20th April.

Join us at Rough Trade for exclusive Limited Edition vinyl, live music, giveaways and more. Keep an eye on our X, Instagram and Facebook pages, for updates as and when we have them in the lead up to the big day.

RSD is always a huge day, both for our customers and our staff and a chance to really soak up the vibrancy of independent music retail and the communities they lovingly serve. Hope you can join us.

Rough Trade Record Store Day 2024 exclusive capsule in collaboration with Jeremy Jones

Born and based in London, Jeremy has forged a unique identity in his paintings, illustrations and skateboarding. He refined his talents whilst teaching urban art courses at a west London gallery before going on to assisting a contemporary pop artist. His creative influences stem from childhood comics like The Beano and the expressive “wildstyle” letterforms found in graffiti.

Limited Edition t-shirt and tote bag will be available in-store from Saturday 20th April.

RSD 2024 Shopping Guidelines

  • Stores open from 8am, including our coffee bars at East, Bristol and Liverpool.
  • As usual, one copy per person, only. For fairness sake, we have to prohibit multiple buys of the same release.
  • Strictly first come, first served - no customer reservations.
  • We will be providing a ‘personal shopping service’ for Record Store Day releases (as store access will be limited). So, please have your wish list ready prior to entering the store, and Rough Trade staff will look to obtain your selections for you.
  • To help us manage the safe capacity of the store, we kindly ask that you are prompt with your custom, helping us ensure everyone receives service, as fast as possible.
  • As it will be a busy day with unprecedented requirements, we kindly ask that you are patient and courteous to all our staff members.
