Celebrate the 10th annual Record Store Day at the Isle of Wight’s only official store!


Bringing together music enthusiasts each year to celebrate the unique culture and ethos of independent music shops and the vinyl format, RSD is now a firm fixture on the calendar. The Ventnor Exchange is the only store that takes part on the Isle of Wight and as ever we can promise a packed day of live performances, talks, DJ’s and our the return of our Big RSD Quiz with loads of great prizes to be won!


We are also the only place on the Island where you can get hold of some of those very limited edition releases made available for the day. People arrive early in the morning so to be in with a chance of getting what your after make sure your an early bird!


As always we will be stocked up with the Island’s BIGGEST craft beer menu 40+, wide range of soft drinks and Island Roasted Coffees and teas as well as cake for the party.




Here are the latest updates for live performances during the day, as well as the updated RSD list for the titles we’ll have in stock. Still a few more to be added tomorrow! Don’t forget 5 mystery records in the store will have a pair of free tickets to the Isle of Wight Festival, and the first 20 customers on the day will get a free Fred Perry bag!
