About National Album Day

On Saturday 12th October the entire British music community are coming together to celebrate the second National Album Day.

There’s going to be a week-long build-up of events and activities across the country celebrating the album as a format involving amazing talent which spans artists, songwriters, producers, labels, retailers, sleeve designers and the great British public too!  

We've enjoyed over 70 years of albums; classic, life-changing, first, influential and even the ones we couldn't live without. Albums mean different things to different people – but there is no denying the huge impact they’ve not only had on our lives but on British pop-culture as we know it.  

There are lots of ways for to celebrate National Album Day, from hosting album listening parties, going record shopping with friends, attending live album playbacks or just rejoicing in your record collection and telling us all about the albums you cherish and love. Check out our Get Involved page for more ideas and to submit information about your event.

Don’t Skip is our theme for 2019, exploring the benefits of taking time out to listen to an album from start to finish. Not limited to chillout or relaxation genres – simply letting your favourite albums be the antidote to the fast-paced and hectic lifestyle of the modern world!

Be part of the national conversation and join us in sharing the albums you #DontSkip by posting to socials tagging us @AlbumDayUK and using the official #DontSkip hashtag.
