RSD Traffic Record 🚀
Thanks to tremendous collaboration and a lot of hard work by many folks, Record Store Day continues to produce incredible success stories each and every year.
This year there was palpable excitement for the return of in-person shopping at many stores for the first time in two years. Even with people flocking to brick and mortar again this year, it didn't dampen digital interest in RSD.
We set a new record for the biggest single day of traffic on RecrordStoreDay.com in the website's 15-year history, with more details and specifics in Record Store Day's official wrap-up report, which is coming soon.
In addition, we had a significant increase in user sessions up from last year's June RSD Drop which was our previous record.
These numbers show that interest and excitement around physical music, vinyl and RSD continues to grow.
