Floating Points, Coldcut and more back new #recordstoreoftheday campaign

floating points

The campaign will champion a new independent record store every day.

Floating Points is among the backers for a new campaign aiming to save independent record stores that have temporarily closed because of the coronavirus pandemic. The campaign aims to highlight an independent record store every day across social media, starting today with Banquet Records in Kingston-upon-Thames, encouraging people to purchase records online and over the phone.

The new campaign is also asking people to share memorable purchases from record stores on social media with the hashtag #recordstoreoftheday. People who share posts with the hashtag will be entered into a draw to win vouchers for one of the participating record stores. As well as Floating Points, Coldcut, Erased Tapes, Eglo, Jazz Re:freshed and others are backing the campaign. See the current list of participating record stores below.
