In what comes as good news to all vinyl-fanatics and wax-heads, online vinyl marketplace Discogs has acquired the world’s biggest vinyl event, Crate Diggers.
The online monolith has explained in a statement on their website that they aim to connect music collectors across the world not only via the web but also through the events that Crate Diggers have created.
“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.” (Blog.discogs.com)
These Crate Digger events, which originally started in Portland, OR, are always free and extremely straightforward: a record fair by day, and a live event by night. Previous acts that have graced the Crate Digger turntables include Theo Parrish, Doc Martin, and Dam Funk.
Here’s to hoping it makes it’s way down under!
