Hip hop, electro, new wave, rock, jazz or any genre, new or secondhand, classics or unknown gems: fans of vinyl records come to Brussels from far and wide. There are record shops that have grown over the years into established names for connoisseurs, collectors and music lovers. Alongside them are new shops with ever-changing genres and sometimes even offering added extras, from the sale of books and other things to exhibitions, DJ sets and performances. Here you’ll find a selection of shops from the vast offer that are well worth a visit.
