On Saturday 21st April, Record Store Day hits Manchester's independent vinyl retailers

Every vinyl collector's favourite day is just around the corner, and we're giving you the low down on where to go this RSD and what's happening around the city. Manchester artists Noel Gallagher, Courteeners, Warsaw and The Waterfront have all released limited edition vinyls for 2018's celebrations.

With over 200 stores participating in the UK this year, check out how you can make the most of RSD 2018 in Manchester... 

Piccadilly Records, 53 Oldham Street

The legendary store this year teams up with Common and celebrates international Record Store Day with live bands from 5pm, including Franic Lung, The Foetals and Secret Admirer, before Pins takes to the decks, followed by a special Piccadilly Records DJ Set. Free entry and lots more fun to be announced.

Vinyl Revival, 5 Hilton Street 

This will be Vinyl Revival's fourth year taking part in Record Store Day, and they plan to stock around 150 of the releases this Saturday. Check their website for a list of available records.  

Eastern Bloc Records, 5A Stevenson Square 

Once again, Eastern Bloc are getting fully involved with RSD, focusing on hand picking the best records from regular distributors and stocking key official RSD titles. DJs are planned from 9am till 2am, so get on your dancing shoes for 17 hours of everything from funk to afro to techno to jungle to hip hop. Free entry all day.
