Welcome to Dig Vinyl, Liverpool’s premier independent record shop, tucked away above the hustle & bustle of the city’s iconic Bold Street.
Since opening in March 2014, we've become a must-visit destination in the North for music enthusiasts. Whether you're a seasoned collector or a casual listener; local or tourist, pop down for a dig through our chock-full browsers filled with wax delights - we put fresh stock out daily, so you never know what you may find!
Our friendly team of dedicated diggers are always happy to help you find the perfect tunes. With stacks of notable bangers and an ever-growing selection, we cater to all musical preferences - from killer classics to guilty pleasures, our second-hand records and essential reissues have something for everyone!
We tirelessly source ultra-rare, in-demand and tough to find tunes, traveling far and wide to bring our customers vinyl gems across all genres, formats and price points…. from the mind-bending depths of psychedelic rock to the soaring heights of spiritual jazz; beats that range from funky house to driving techno; and global sounds to transport you to every corner of the world.
Dig Vinyl was the inevitable product of decades worth of record dealing, DJing, band managing, record label running, and music making of its founders, Anthony Nyland and Carl Emery. They founded the shop as a local response to the relentless talking down of physical record shops and the corporate commodification of music, and have worked to cultivate a knowledgeable and friendly shop atmosphere centred around their love for Liverpool and the music that it was built on.
But it doesn’t stop at the tunes! We’ve always been heavily involved in the local music scene - managing pop-up shops everywhere from the legendary Albert Dock to the David Bowie World Fan Convention, as well as at festivals around the city (Sound City, Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia) and farther afield (We Out Here Festival, London’s Independent Label Market). We also help curate the quarterly CRATE Market at Future Yard in Birkenhead, and are always keen to hear about new opportunities - get in touch with your ideas!
Our team is filled to the brim with musicians, radio hosts and DJs - spinning at renowned festivals & events such as Eurovision Village, BBC 6Music Festival, Africa Oye, Tate Liverpool, LIMF and more. We showcase the sound of our teams’ own digs at our monthly event ‘Dig After Dark’ at Kazimier Garden, where our DJs spin an eclectic mix from their own crates. Can’t make it down? Not to worry, you can tune in to our shop's monthly Melodic Distraction radio shows, or one of the many staff-hosted shows on MDR or NTS.
Nearly ten years on, Dig Vinyl has seen 3 expansions and one big move down Bold Street, and in that time has become more than just a record shop – it’s a success story and a testament to the love of music that drives Liverpool. Pop in and see us for a dig today!
