Record Store Day has been postponed.
The global celebration of independent music retailers has grown to huge levels, connecting communities on both sides of the Atlantic.
Set to play place in April, the spread of coronavirus has led organisers to postpone the event.
Now taking place on June 20th, it's a move that will impact on shops, customers, labels, and artists, but it's also not one taken lightly.
Apologising for any disruption caused by this, Record Store Day reiterate that this move has been taken in response to the spread of coronavirus.
Here's the statement in full.
