How do I get my Record Store Day release to stores?

Then, product is sold to stores in the normal way through your standard distributor.  Record Store Day are not involved in the order or distribution process. You may only sell to Record Store Day stores, a full list of which will be provided to all labels and distributors supplying product for Record Store Day.


I want to perform on Record Store Day...
Let us know the area you wish to perform in and we can let local stores know you are available but arrangements must be made direct with the store. You can find local stores by using our store search function and set up a performance direct. The Record Store Day organisers do not arrange the in-store events as each store is responsible for their own activities.
