RECORD STORES IN BARCELONA – PARADISE FOR VINTAGE MUSIC LOVERS

With a love of everything vintage on the rise, vinyl sales are off the charts.

From Taylor Swift to U2, everyone has gone back to making vinyl available, often with special editions and offers for fans included , such as promo codes for ticket sales or photobooks.

Since music shops closed years ago, giving way to the digital age of music, most vinyl sales have moved online or been confined to charity shops and vintage outlets.

These are often still the best places to find vinyl but a recent rise in popularity means the number of stores dedicated solely to vinyl is creeping up.
