More than 1 million physical music releases on vinyl, CD, cassette and more have been submitted to the music database since January.
We asked you to help us reach 9 million releases in the Discogs database, and you totally came through! We’re thrilled to announce the Discogs database has reached another substantial milestone in our ongoing mission to build the most comprehensive music database in the world! With over 9 Million releases cataloged in the database by over 375,000 contributors, the Discogs Database has averaged over 113,000 monthly submissions since the start of the year.
With the Discogs database crossing the 8 million release mark in January, that’s a growth of 1 million releases in just 9 months. Once again, the Discogs database is totally indebted to the hard work and attention of our amazing community of buyers, sellers and contributors who are adding their favorite records to the music database.
“What we’re experiencing in the growth of contributors and submissions to the Discogs Database only echoes the thriving passion for music’s physical formats,” states Chad Dahlstrom, COO of Discogs. “The Discogs Database mission will never lose focus on preserving physical releases in any format imaginable from every part of the world.”
Our September Pledge Initiative is an annual push to encourage music lovers to ensure their favorite releases are forever saved in the Discogs database. This year 120,000 releases were submitted to the database in September alone.
It’s not just the Discogs database that growing. Gearogs, Filmogs, Bookogs, Comicogs and Posterogs databases have also experienced exponential growth since the start of the year. These databases surpassed submission goals by as much as 597% as a result during the September Pledge Initiative.
Thank you for your help in helping us reach 9 million releases in the Discogs database! Your effort and attention to detail are helping us preserve music history and ensure no release is left behind.
