Record Store Day UK continues apace this year, providing more opportunities than ever to celebrate the art of music.

The annual event has steadily grown from a vinyl junkie's wet dream into a truly global event that pays tribute to an ever growing range of artists and genres.

Here in the UK, London’s record mecca Berwick Street will be hosting a load of performances and DJs at the annual block party on 19 April.

Adam Ant, Edwyn Collins, DJ Andy, The September Girls, Ruts DC, The Augustines and Tim Arnold will all play live, while DJ support comes from Four Tet and Illum Sphere.

Rough Trade East will host Toy, East India Youth, The Rails, Ben Watt and Bernard Butler, Younghusband, J Spaceman, Amazing Snakeheads and DJ sets from Trevor Jackson and Django Django.

Even more artists are booked for the West store - including Adam Ant, Sleaford Mods, Eyedress, Slow Club and Edwyn Collins.

Around the country there’s plenty going on too.

Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly (Sam Duckworth) will play at Truck store in Oxford, while in Manchester, Piccadilly Records is to host an all-day record festivity with The Smoke Faries, The Emperor Machine and more.
