Record Store Day 2021
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.
At Vinyl Guru, we will be using an appointment-booking system like last year. Appointments will be available to book from our website from 8:00 AM on each Saturday a week before RSD.
RSD releases will be available from Vinyl Guru across two "RSD Drop Dates" (RSD Drop #1 June 12th) (RSD Drop #2 July 17th) for in-person local payment on collection by appointment from 8:00 AM. Any remaining, unsold RSD releases will also be available for general sale online from 6:00 PM UK (same day) for both the first RSD Drop Date (12th June), and the second RSD Drop Date (17th July).
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.
We highly recommend that you complete and submit a Vinyl Guru RSD request google form (if you have already done this you do not need to submit another form).
We are aiming to let you know which RSD releases from your RSD requests will be available for you to purchase at Vinyl Guru at the time of your appointment by the week 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 June 12th - RSD Drop #1
Saturday July 17th - RSD Drop #2
