What is
Record Store Day?

Record Store Day is an annual event featuring limited-edition vinyl releases from popular artists and labels. Availability will vary greatly depending on where you live or shop. Your favorite record store — whether it’s the local brick-and-mortar or your go-to shop on Discogs — will request titles, but that doesn’t guarantee the store will get enough for everyone who wants one.

The very nature of Record Store Day creates exclusivity. Since every item is a limited edition, the demand is going to be a lot higher than the supply.

Depending on the release, the value will appreciate over time. However, the initial drop price on the day of the event is typically standard for what you would pay for a special format (like a picture disc), a box set (especially those collectors’ versions), colored vinyl, or a deluxe reissue. The cost tends to be more expensive for titles with fewer copies or more goodies.

Check out Record Store Day for more information about the 16th annual event on April 22, 2023. Discogs is not affiliated with the RSD organization but we agree with their mission of bringing more people into record stores.
