We’re excited to announce that we have partnered with the premier vinyl-centric event in the world, Crate Diggers! While the Discogs website connects music collectors all over the world, Crate Diggers turns that virtual experience into something more tangible, and we’re looking forward to bringing the event to 10 (!) different cities across the globe in 2017.
“We’re often asked if we support record stores and selling offline. The answer has always been yes. Through our site VinylHub and now Crate Diggers we can continue support the sales and trading of albums live. All of us love to dig records and we want Crate Diggers to be one of those events that diggers can look forward to year after year.” our Chief Operating Officer Chad Dahlstrom says.
Originally started 3 years ago in Portland, OR, Crate Diggers has quickly expanded to include Los Angeles and Miami. This year saw the first international edition held in Berlin, Germany. The event is always free and the format is simple: Record Fair by day that gives way to a DJ After Party at night. Theo Parrish, Doc Martin, Dam-Funk, Rick Wilhite and many others have graced the turntables bridging the gap between old school record collectors and new vinyl enthusiasts.
Our Community Manager Liz Maddux about the events: “The Crate Diggers series provides the opportunity to bring together the music collecting community under one roof so that music lovers everywhere can converge and discuss and share their passion. With each passing Crate Diggers event, more and more people get the word and come down to show off their wares, and we are dedicated to bringing this experience to cities and users across the globe.”
The next event is taking place in LA, on the 22nd of October. Keep an eye on our blog, and on the Crate Diggers page for the latest news about all upcoming events!
