Saturday 23rd April

We've had lot's of queries about queuing up, and so we will now be opening at 8am, for you die-hards!

Record Store Day is an annual international celebration of independent record stores. Real Groovy is the biggest, and one of the longest running, corporate-free record stores in New Zealand so we take great pride in showing that we are the real deal! Record Store Day is going to be on Saturday the 23rd of April with giveaways, freebies, live art and exclusive vinyl deals!

Record Store day is all about bringing people into their local record store, and experiencing the thrill of discovery.

We can't guarantee specific exclusive titles will be here, but we do our lil' best to get every exclusive Record Store Day Release that we can get our hands on! We will also be doing some awesome bargains on the day!


Marcus Watson will be painting a turntable live in store from 11am - 2pm. You will be able to enter to win the turntable too!

Our groovy staff will be spinning some bangin' tunes throughout the day.


As if everything wasn’t sounding amazing enough already, we’ve got some of our FAVOURITE foodies helping us out on the day. We will have ice cold beverages from Almighty to give out as well as a Baby G Burger food stall to fill your hungry bellies!
