record store day

Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. The first Record Store Day took place on April 19, 2008. Today there are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica.

This is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store—the staff, the customers, and the artists—to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, DJs spinning records, and on and on. In 2008 a small list of titles was released on Record Store Day and that list has grown to include artists and labels both large and small, in every genre and price point. In 2015, 60% of the Record Store Day Official Release List came from independent labels and distributors. The list continues to include a wide range of artists, covering the diverse taste of record stores and their customers.

In 2002, CALIF (Action Club for French Independant Labels) was created in France. Its original mission was to « maintain and develop a network of independent records stores able to relay a pluralistic offer to the public ». Since 2010, CALIF has naturally took over the international event in France.

The sixth edition of the Record Store Day in Marseilles will take place on Saturday 16th of April 2016 at la Friche la Friche Belle de Mai, organised by Phonopaca (federation of independent labels in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region), the regional antenna for CALIF.
Programme includes concerts, independent record stores village, record market, artists signatures… Also, one can purchase some limited editions and rare records, specially edited for the event, from one of the 20 records stores participating to the event. 4 of them operate in Marseilles (Lollipop, Galette, Extend & Play, Sabre-Tooth).
