UK National Album Day 2023 will Pay Homage to the ’90s

The sixth NAD will take place in October 2023

For six years now, Britain has been organizing its National Album Day, and in October 2023, that event will celebrate the classic albums of the 1990s.

As the online daily NME reports, the 2023 edition of National Album Day has been confirmed and is set to pay homage to the iconic pop, rock, dance, and rap albums that shaped the decade. Previous themes for the annual event include the ’80s, Women in Music, and, most recently, debut albums.

This year, the event will take place on Saturday, October 14, and will be presented in association with official broadcast partner BBC Sounds – “aiming to unite the music community and celebrate the meaningful impact an album can make.”

This year marks the sixth edition of the event – which initially launched in 2018 – and seeks to shine a light upon the artists and albums that defined the 1990s. All genres from the decade are included, whether Britpop acts including Oasis and Pulp, trip-hop artists such as Portishead, or pop icons like the Spice Girls. The event will also celebrate 75 years of the album LP format.

Lesser-known and obscure artists will also be presented, as the organizers confirm that the event will pay tribute to all artists behind these influential bodies of work, and look at their impact on both the UK and global scale.
