The Big Moon, the official ambassadors of this year’s event, say: We’ve played in lots of excellent record shops up and down the country and have met wonderful people every time. From the people who work there and organise events to the generous souls who have parted with their money and time to buy our records and come to see us play intimate shows. It just generally made us feel like what we’re doing is sometimes worthwhile. 

It’s important that we protect these physical communal spaces so that in the post corona virus world we can make sure they are still there and accessible and welcoming to all. Support your local record store!”
