Partnerships with Audio-Technica and HeadCount, Exclusive LPs Announced

After a pause since 2019 due to the pandemic, music lovers, record enthusiasts, and audiophiles are warmly invited to the much-awaited return of Warner Music Group’s (Nasdaq: WMG) Record Store Crawl. Presented by turntable brand Audio-Technica, the crawl is set to make its grand return in New York City on May 18th, 2024, before embarking on a several-month journey through iconic record stores in cities nationwide.

This year’s Record Store Crawl, in collaboration with the voter registration non-profit HeadCount, offers a unique twist: the seventh crawl location will be chosen by vinyl collectors nationwide through a vote. After casting their votes for the crawl, participants are encouraged to check their voter registration status for the 2024 election. For details on how to vote for the crawl location, visit

Attendees will experience exclusive performances, special edition vinyl releases, and more, all while indulging in a music-filled day complemented by delicious food, refreshing drinks, and unique giveaways aboard the Record Store Crawl bus. The crawl will include the launch of exclusive, limited edition collection of vinyl releases, including the first-ever vinyl release of Portraits by Quarters of Change, and the highly anticipated re-issues of the Twilight Saga soundtracks. Record Store Crawl exclusive LPs will be available at independent record stores nationwide and on the Record Store Crawl’s website.
