Next year marks a whole 15 years since the start of what has now become the largest single-day music event in the world, and there will be plenty of surprises to keep music fans engaged.

Record Store Day 2022 will take place on April 23, 2022.

The four much-loved Record Store Day partners at the very heart of independence and vinyl in the UK: Bowers & Wilkins, Meantime Brewing Company, Rega Research, and Sound Performance, will also return next year.

This year's Record Store Day 2021 saw exclusive vinyl drops from 538 artists in total, including superstars such as Ed Sheeran and Little Mix, as well as celebratory reissues of modern classics like Amy Winehouse's Back To Black.
