Discogs has confirmed a new event in the New York City area that is definitely something I’d love to attend — Crate Diggers: The Bronx. Set for July 27, 2019, this is an all-out vinyl nerd extravaganza and they’ll be welcoming some artists to the event as well, with Method Man & Redman already confirmed.
The idea is “conceived by our desire to bring the record collecting community together” which is fantastic, because it’s basically a festival designed to feel like a record store. Fans can buy/sell records, listen to music, and “dance alongside those that share a deep passion for vinyl” — awesome!
If you’re not state side, don’t fret — they’re bringing these events all over the world this year. The next one is set for Brighton, UK in May, and then Tokyo, Japan will get an event in October before they finish off the year in November down Sao Paulo, Brazil. You can find more info about those events below.
