Info About Record Store Day Australia

Want to participate in Record Store Day celebrations?

Record Store Day Australia accepts submissions from all indie record stores in Australia to participate in Record Store Day celebrations if the following criteria are met:

  • The store must be a physical shopfront located in Australia and open to the public year round (we will require photographic evidence: an image of the outside of your store and an image on the inside)
  • The store must be independently owned and not publicly traded with at least 70% of ownership residing in Australia
  • Recorded music must be a significant part of the business

Pop up stores, fairs and online-only businesses DO NOT QUALIFY—this is a day to foster our independent store owners and staff who work day in, day out to bring the best music from around the world to our fingertips.

Any business which applies to participate and does not meet these criteria will not be approved. Indie record stores who submit complete information, and are found to meet all criteria are invited to participate by making Record Store Day a celebration day for their store. In-store performances, sales, demonstrations, dances, and everything that makes an indie record store unique should be on display that day. Stores are welcome to participate at any level they choose.

Participating retailer’s Record Store Day celebrations and events will be listed on the Record Store Day Australia website. Please send us any photos and information including live performance and poster artwork about what you have planned for the day and we will happily include it on our website.
