The first Record Store Crawl events since the pandemic will happen this year across the United States. The Warner Music Group event is presented by Audio-Technica this year—with a fan-voted city in the mix.

The seventh crawl location will be chosen by vinyl collectors across the United States through voting, in a partnership with non-profit HeadCount. Participants are encouraged to check their voter registration status ahead of the 2024 election.

For the 2024 Record Store Crawl, attendees will experience exclusive performances, special edition vinyl releases, and unique giveaways on the Record Store Crawl bus. The event will start in New York City on May 18 before wrapping up in October in Los Angeles. Each date will offer a music-filled day complemented by delicious food, refreshing drinks, and more. See below for official dates.

The crawl will also include the launch of exclusive, limited-edition vinyl releases, including the first-ever vinyl release of Portraits by Quarters of Change. Also included this year are re-issues of the Twilight Saga soundtracks. Record Store Crawl exclusive LPs will be available at independent record stores nationwide and on the Record Store Crawl website.

Kicking off at Tower Records’ Brooklyn outpost, Tower Labs, the New York City Crawl will feature stops at prominent stores such as Generation Records, Rough Trade, and Crawlers which will have a first look at Audio-Technica’s turntable store coming soon to SoHo.
