Discogs launches expanded VinylHub becomes largest database of record stores worldwide


Discogs is building and expanding their VinylHub site, an accurate, user-contributed listing of all record shops & record events to continue their effort to catalog every piece and source for vinyl records.

If you’re anything like Discogs’ over two million users, you like to know how to find the best and most current outlets for your vinyl needs, and with the addition of listing events and floating pop up retailers to VinylHub, Discogs’ has made it easier for anyone to be pointed towards the appropriate stores and events no matter where they are in the world to grow their collection.

Users can enter in past or present events with details as focused as whether or not the store, record fair, or pop-up shop has an ATM available on site and what their hours and early bird availabilities are. No longer do you have to ask strange people on the street where to find the best record store when you’re on vacation anywhere. VinylHub users will be able to crate dig from their home, and even tour through lists and details of notable record stores from the past.

Since launching just over a year ago VinylHub has become the largest database in the world for record stores across the globe. Discogs’ mission is to catalog every piece of music in the world, and now they are extending that to record shops.

Throughout the year, the anniversary celebration continues at Discogs with the official iOS App Launch approaching, and the debut of both VinylHub and Gearogs (for turntables). Truly the next year appears to cement Discogs (the largest physical music database in the world) as the brand name in physical music commerce around the world.
