Update - 9 June, 2020: Record Store Day will now proceed across three release days (29 August, 26 September and 24 October) billed as RSD Drops. Click here for more information.

Next month's Record Store Day has joined the long list of casualties swept up in the COVID-19 pandemic, with the internationally celebrated event (scheduled for 18 April) postponed to Saturday 20 June.

Aussie music legend Ross Wilson will continue as an ambassador for 2020.

Locally, there are still hopes some form of celebration for the original Record Store Day can proceed with owner of Canberra's Landspeed Records, Blake Budak (who is President of AMRA that runs Record Store Day in Australia) saying they don't want to completely abandon the 18 April date.

"The third Saturday in April is a hallowed day in the diary of all music fans and we don't want to abandon that," Budak says, "but we are also very aware that we are not operating under normal conditions.

"So we are looking at how we can still safely celebrate indie music and indie record stores on our day of days. How we do that is the challenge, but with the support of the record companies and sponsors we expect to have a plan by early next week. So stay safe and stand by for more news."

This will be the 13th year of Record Store Day, which is celebrated by more than 85,000 music lovers and 200 indie music stores around Australia, as well as millions of people worldwide.
