Record Planet Mega Record & CD Fair Overview

by SoLil

Join us next weekend, 11-12 November, at the Record Planet Mega Record & CD Fair in Utrecht, The Netherlands! We’re looking forward to meeting you and hearing about your experiences with buying and selling records on Discogs and any ideas you have for the future of Discogs! If you have time that is; with around 500 dealers in a space the size of 2.5 (!) soccer pitches, there’ll be plenty of digging to do.
