Music fans, rejoice! Record Store Day is back
The 2019 edition of Record Store Day is just around the corner, taking place this Saturday the 13th of April.
Past editions have been extremely popular, with people queuing outside hours before the participating stores open their doors.
RSD is a national event taking place once a year. Over 200 independent record stores across the country join forces to celebrate their unique culture.
On the day music fans can expect exclusive vinyl releases, live performances and other music-related events.
Brighton is undoubtedly one of the best places in the country to spend this special day in, as it is popular for its vibrant music scene.
To mark the event, five shops will be opening their doors to celebrate what has become one of the most important events on the music calendar.
Bella Union Vinyl Shop
Bella Union will be celebrating Record Store Day in style with a special live solo set by BC Camplight at 12:30PM. On the day visitors can expect special guest DJ sets, free coffee and doughnuts.
We want to save the world from a soul-less shopping experience. Records do not belong in supermarkets.Simon Parker

His shop Vinyl Revolution is a shop for both music experts and amateurs, where people can not only find old and new vinyls, but also art prints, clothing and home goods.
2018 was our most fun RSD event, so we’re busy working out how to top it!
At Resident Music they have many events lined up for the special day, including live performances from The Leisure Society, Our Girl and David George, as well as DJ sets from Blood Red Shoes and Wrongtom. On the day you can expect lots of records, silliness and the traditional Resident raffle.
We’ve got an all day party with Portsea Island flavoured Rum, beers and coffee courtesy of the Hotel Pelirocco.
The record store, which recently moved to Brighton Place, now offers a wider range of records as well as art prints. Join them for a day of music, drinks, and partying until late. You can check the full stock list for the day on their website.
If your plan for the day is to party until late, Rarekind is the place to be. They will be taking over the upstairs of Patterns for an all-vinyl session and DJ sets from DJ Format and Rob Life. You’ll be able to listen to a variety of music genres, from hip-hop to psychedelic.
