Love Record Stores 2021
Following the resounding success of the #loverecordstores campaign in 2020 and the subsequent Love Record Stores event, which took place last June, the campaign organisers have announced plans for a second event, which will take place on 4th September.
Now an important fixture in the music retail calendar for UK record retailers, labels and music fans alike, Love Record Stores 2021 will be an opportunity for the independent music community to come together to support record stores who, like many other businesses, have faced difficult trading conditions throughout the pandemic.
Given the UK government’s recent announcements about lifting lockdown restrictions the organisers are confident that by September 4th, Love Record Stores 2021 will see music fans able to visit and support their favourite physical stores rather than just their online websites to purchase vinyl exclusives across range of strictly limited-edition releases.
There'll be limited edition pressings from Sharon Van Etten, Oh Sees, Black Country, New Road, Flowered Up, Mogwai, Soulwax, Butthole Surfers, Dub Narcotic Sound System, Modern Studies, Sonic Youth and the Pastels, and lots more. We'll be posting our stock list online a little nearer the time on here, and on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. All releases will only be available in the shop to begin with - no pre-orders - but anything left will be online to buy from 9pm on the day.
