CASSETTE STORE DAY2020

From the Cassette Store Day website in 2019;

The annual event which celebrates the beloved rectangular format is run by three record labels independently: Blak Hand Records (UK) Burger Records (USA) and Side-B Creations (JP). Founded in London by a group of labels in 2013, Cassette Store Day saw a thriving demand and to the surprise of its founders has grown into a highly anticipated event happening all around the world in places like China, Indonesia, Australia and Canada. Cassette Store Day has had releases over its short history from the likes of The White Stripes, Green Day, Ramones, The Flaming Lips, and Motörhead.  “Over the last year the growth of cassettes has been really impressive. Cassette Store Day 2018 had over 300 releases worldwide and we anticipate the same for 2019.” says CSD UK Manager Brit Williams. “It’s our seventh year and the cassette community is really strong. Everyone wants to help out the creatives around them and get involved to celebrate this day.“ 

The 7th annual Cassette Store Day (CSD) took place on Saturday the 12th of October 2019 worldwide. Here are the published timelines from the CSD website for 2019, as a guide only, for anyone wanting to take part in next years event.
