Taking Part in Record Store Day 2021

Record Store Day 2021

Record Store Day 2021 will take place on Saturday 12th June and Saturday 17th July 2021.

The sign up process for RSD 2021 is now closed for both shops and labels.

RSD Black Friday 2021

To take part in Black Friday 2021, labels will need to complete and return the product submission form and fill in the label code of conduct (if you have not already taken part in RSD 2021).

The deadline for submitting Black Friday releases is 26th July 2021. If titles are not received and finalised by this date they may not be added to the Black Friday list You should not go into production until your release has been approved by the RSD board first. Titles submitted after this date may not be guaranteed inclusion on the list. 

Record Store Day 2022

To take part as a shop, please check back here at a later date for more information.


Please note that we are now taking submissions for RSD 2022. The final date in which you can submit a product for 2022 is 19th November 2021.

Submit your titles for the official RSD UK list using the UK product submission form and signing the label code of conduct. You must not go into production on an intended RSD release without getting approval first. The earlier you submit the quicker we can approve. Due to the anticipated high volume of submissions, it may take 5-7 days to deliver approvals if you submit in the final week. You should download the RSD spreadsheet template and label code of conduct

We realise this deadline is earlier than previous years, however as RSD and the release list continues to grow significantly each year so too do the approval processes and the time it takes to assess each release.



Use of the Record Store Day logo...
If you wish to use the logo you must obtain permission from the Record Store Day organisers, who may give permission and will need to approve printed materials etc in advance.


How do I get my Record Store Day release to stores?
First, you sign a label code of conduct as outlined above. 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.
