Dheg Dheg Plat is a vinyl lover gathering when vinyl lover could told the story of their favorite vinyl to the other while the story teller playing his/her favorite song on the turntable. This event was made by Anto Arief because of his personal favorite to vinyl and Indonesian legend musician, Koes Ploes, who one of their song titled is Dheg Dheg Plas. Dheg Dheg means the sound of heart beat while waiting something which is exciting, meanwhile Plat is the other name of vinyl.
