Spotlight: Record Store Day - New Zealand 2024

Spotlight: Record Store Day - New Zealand 2024

Chris Cudby / Friday 19th April, 2024 2:14PM

That day when we celebrate the crucial role local independent record retailers play in our musical ecosystem, vinyl lovers and collector fiends will be raiding the bins this coming Saturday on the hunt for annual Record Store Day exclusives. As tradition dictates, there will be a variety of free in-store performances across Aotearoa throughout the day for you to enjoy as you jump from store to store. Give the streaming sharks the middle finger and plonk down your hard-earned cash on an actual physical artefact to cherish on your home stereo system (or portable cassette / compact disc player) this coming weekend.

Every RSD event listed below is all-ages so bring the whole whānau, scope out the on-site exclusives / sales / competitions and discover your new favourite local live act at the same time.  Click the links for more info and check out NZ Music Month's informative RSD page HERE for more Aotearoa record store resources [Note: only stores promoting RSD events are included below]...
