Record Store Day celebrated its 15th anniversary on April 23, 2022. Started in 2007, Record Store Day is held one Saturday every April and every Black Friday in November to celebrate the vinyl medium and record stores throughout the world. This year, however, a third date has been added: Saturday, June 18.
Because of the resurgence of vinyl’s popularity, plus difficulties with the global supply chain, this date was instituted for items that were delayed in production or not delivered in time for Record Store Day in April. If you love vinyl, here are some places you definitely need to stop by in downtown Provo this weekend.
3hive Record Lounge
Located at 50 E 500 N #105 in Provo across from the library, this store is a vibe. With a clean, minimalist atmosphere featuring custom record cabinets made by WUMU Custom Woodworking, you’ll have a fantastic experience. The store is open 12 PM – 8 PM. See what records they have here.
