Music lovers will be camping outside independent record stores tonight in the hopes of getting their hands on a one-off limited edition vinyl.

Tomorrow marks the ninth annual Record Store day, which promotes the culture of physically buying music in a world where people are becoming used to downloading and steaming songs.

About 500 limited edition releases by the likes of David Bowie and Florence and the Machine will be sold exclusively in independent record stores across the country.

Some 230 shops are taking part in the day.

Kingston’s Banquet Records has got in more limited edition vinyl than ever before for this year.

Owner Jon Tolley said: “It is the biggest day of the year for us. We have people queuing overnight and camping out.

“We have a guy who comes down from Norwich every year and camps out overnight. This is going to be the first year where the weather is not good so it’s going to be the really committed record customer outside.

“We’ll have some bands to entertain people in the queues. It’s a really unique experience.”
