Mission

United by purpose

Discogs supports a worldwide, music-loving community who seek to connect through a shared passion for physical music formats as an art form, collectible medium, and historical information archive.

Values

Aligned by values

Threaded by community and driven by curiosity, the team continuously evolves the Discogs platform to provide the best experience possible, connecting buyers, sellers, data-contributors, and info-seekers yearning to dig deeper into music discovery.

Innovation

Building more than a database

At the beating heart of Discogs is a comprehensive, highly credited, user-built discography of music artists, master releases, and subsequent physical format versions. However, the true innovation of Discogs is how the data itself connects people and empowers them to discover, buy, and sell recorded music.
