Record Stored Day 2020 is being postponed amid Coronavirus outbreak

The decision has been made that in the wake of the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, Record Store Day 2020 in the UK is being postponed.

Originally scheduled for April 18th, the annual event is a moment in the year that encourages patrons to visit their local record shops in a bid to keep the independent record shops alive across the country.

Exclusive music was set to be sold throughout the 230 independent record shops that are signed up in the UK. It would also see many stores across the globe take part in the celebrations with in-store gigs and mini street festivals.

Now, those events are all being postponed in line with growing fears amid the Coronavirus outbreak and a new date of June 20th has been scheduled.
