Record Store Day 2020 has been rescheduled yet again due to COVID-19.

The annual event celebrating independent record stores was originally scheduled for April 28, then June 20 and now the plan has been changed entirely. Instead of occurring on just one day, the celebration will be held with “RSD Drops”. These days will occur over three consecutive months; August 29, September 26 and October 24.

On each of these days, record stores will receive a bundle of exclusive releases. A press release stated that this plans aims to bring “revenue to the stores, as well as to the artists, labels, distribution and every other business behind the scenes making record stores work.”

An updated Record Store Day list will be released on June 1.

RECORD STORE DAY IS SOCIAL DISTANCING! 2020 is different. So what we're doing this year is going to be different too. No one knows what kind of party we'll all be in the mood for, or able to hold safely, at any time this year, in any part of the world. So we're focusing this year not on the party aspect of Record Store Day, but on getting the great releases on the RSD 2020 List into your local record store, and then into your collection. RSD DROPS! Three street dates when titles from The List will be available only at participating indie record stores. We're working on getting the new version of The List — with new RSD Drops dates — all nice and pretty for you. Look for that on the Record Store Day site on June 1. #RSDDrops #RSD2020 #RSD20 #recordstoreday #ShopIndie ##socialdistancing #2020iswack #recordstores #recordstoresarecool #loverecordstores
