Join us in-store at Rough Trade East for another day championing a rich and diverse collection of releases and celebrating the continued importance of independent record stores, many of whom have had a very challenging time of it these last two years.

New for this year the Rough Trade 'RSD Pop-Up' where the bulk of RSD stock will be housed in the unit right next door to the store to leave the shop open for general browsing and live music celebrations!

The store opens from 8am, including our cafe pouring Dark Arts Coffee and Beavertown Beers with live music from, Theon Cross, Japanese Television, Tatyana, A.R Kane Sounds as well as much more starting at 1pm!

We will also be hosting a signing with Jonny Trunk linked to his new book 'A-Z of Record Shop Bags: 1940s to 1990s' and Dave Bayley from Glass Animals will be signing copies of the RSD release. Later in the day, there will also be in conversation with David M. Allen & Phil Thornally around the release of 'The DNA of DMA'.


In the 'RSD Pop-Up' we will be hosting the following: 3pm DJ set from The BoAt Pod 4pm DJ set from Dennis Bovell 5:30pm DJ set from Rebecca Vasmat

RSD 2022 Shopping Guidelines

Please note ahead of the day...

As usual, one copy per person, only. For fairness' sake, we have to prohibit multiple buys of the same release.

Strictly first come, first served - no customer reservations.

We will be providing a ‘personal shopping service’ for Record Store Day releases (as store access will be limited). So, please have your wish list ready prior to entering the store, and Rough Trade staff will look to obtain your selections for you.

To help us manage the safe capacity of the store, we kindly ask that you are prompt with your custom, helping us ensure everyone receives service, as fast as possible.

As it will be a busy day with unprecedented requirements, we kindly ask that you are patient and courteous to all our staff members.
