Cassette Week

Welcome to Cassette Week!

Cassettes sales rose in the Discogs Marketplace by 29.54% in 2017 and by 35.19% so far in 2018. The cassette resurgence is officially here. We’re celebrating the humble cassette tape and its influence all week starting Oct. 8, leading up to Cassette Store Day. We’ll dive into the importance of cassettes with help from thought leaders, cassette kingpins, and the Discogs data team.
