So what is Records Store Day?
Records store day is a yearly event that was created by music enthusiasts – fans & record sellers alike who predominantly belong to the records community to unite together. Universal Music’s sales manager, Marc Fayd’Herbe, has described Record Store Day as “the single best thing that has ever happened” for independent record shops. In these tough times of 2020, with the global pandemic changing most brick and mortar stores to an online business store with music marketplaces & their own ecommerce platforms, Music sellers have no other option but to go online.
As the new online trend setter, sellers are looking at Discogs, a music marketplace for music lovers to discover, buy and sell music in multiple formats like Vinyl, CDs, DVDs, Cassettes, etc. Discogs. Discogs has seen a rise of over 40% in 2020 in comparison to 2019 on Record Store day weeks. This is a significant change that sellers are adapting into owing to the surge in the no of orders & sales on Discogs.
Overall, In the first half of 2020, Discogs shows an increase of 33.83% in sales and 18.77% in submissions over 2019. The most popular physical music format sold this year so far has been vinyl, with a 33.72% increase in sales through the Marketplace year-over-year.
