Record Store Day 2020



    Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, Record Store Day is being handled differently this year in order to minimise risks of infection, particularly through minimising crowds and queues.

    RSD releases will be available from Vinyl Guru across three "RSD Drop Dates" for in-person local payment on collection by appointment only from 8:00 AM UK. Any remaining, unsold RSD releases will be available for general sale online from 6:00 PM UK on the corresponding RSD Drop Dates.

    Vinyl Guru will not be open to the public for general browsing on RSD Drop Dates, and appointments must be booked before arrival. If you arrive in person on a RSD Drop Date without having booked an appointment first, you WILL NOT be allowed in the shop without an appointment - yes even if you have been queueing outside since 4am! Please DO NOT queue in person this year at Vinyl Guru without an appointment for your own safety and the safety of others!

    As for previous RSD events, the RSD code of conduct requires that all RSD releases must be limited to one copy per release per customer and that all RSD releases must be sold on a first-come-first-served basis.


    To book an appointment, please:

  1. Complete and submit a Vinyl Guru RSD request google form (if you have already done this you do not need to submit another form)
  2. A private appointment booking link will be sent to you after you successfully submit your RSD request google form (if you have not received a link please contact us)
  3. Book a free RSD appointment time slot via the private link

    If you are unable or having difficulty booking an appointment, please contact us and we will assist in booking an appointment for you.


    We are aiming to let you know which RSD releases from your RSD requests will be available for you to purchase at Vinyl Guru before each corresponding RSD Drop Date. This means we will be able to have all RSD orders prepared for immediate sale upon collection, and keep crowds and queues to a minimum.



Saturday August 29th - RSD Drop #1


Saturday September 26th - RSD Drop #2


Saturday October 24th UK - RSD Drop #3
