Black Friday vinyl deals 2020: What to expect

With Black Friday 2020 arriving on November 27, vinyl junkies will be in musical heaven if last year is anything to go by. In 2019, we saw massive savings on vinyl box set, picture discs, 2LP sets, live albums and more, so we fully expect to see similar Black Friday vinyl deals across the whole weekend and into Cyber Monday.

With more of a focus on online sales this year due to the pandemic coupled with a raft of new releases like Metallica's incredible S&M2, Ozzy Osbourne's Ordinary Man, Pink Floyd's remaster of Delicate Sound Of Thunder and, of course, AC/DC's comeback album Power Upwhich is already available to pre-order on red vinyl – we're expecting to see some incredible deals. We're also really hoping to see Guns N' Roses' enormous Appetite For Destruction Locked N' Loaded box set come down in price. It was reduced last year, so hopes are high for 2020. Fingers crossed!  

Keep your eyes here on Louder, and we'll point you in the direction of the very best Black Friday vinyl records across the internet.
