As with every Record Store Day order, Tower Records won’t know what swag has been sent in until the boxes are ripped open a day or two before the event, so records are also on order from heavy hitters including David Bowie, Pulp, Paul Weller, The Cure, Bat for Lashes, Django Django, Frank Zappa, Husker Du, MGMT, REM, Pink Floyd, Sigur Ros and heaps more.

This year, Dublin’s biggest independent record store will host Tower Live on Record Store Day, a nine hour festival of live sounds at the Madison club immediately next door to Tower Records on Wicklow Street. From 1pm ‘til 9pm, music fans will be able to enjoy a pint (if they’re over 18!) and free live performances from a host of acts including The #1’s, Owensie, Blink Yackety, Gyspy Rebel Rabble, The Urges, The Hot Sprockets, The Eskies, Sweet Jane, Ghost Estates, Twilight Sad and more. Our younger music fans (under 18’s) will be more than welcome to attend Tower Live on Record Store Day at Madison until 6pm. To access Tower Live on Record Store Day at Madison, fans will need to get a wristband from the main counter in Tower Records Wicklow Street and Easons, O’Connell Street. Wristbands are free and allow holders to come and go as they please. ID may be required for Over 18 wristbands, so bring one! Under 12’s must be accompanied by an adult and all Under 18’s will be required to leave Madison at 6pm. There will also be acoustic performances throughout the day in the Wicklow Street store plus plenty of tricks and treats on the day for all the Tower Records fans who turn out in their hundreds to celebrate their favourite record store!
