Vince Aletti (born 1945) is an American music journalist and photography critic.

Vince Aletti was the first person to write about disco (in a piece called "Discotheque Rock '72: Paaaaarty!" Rolling Stone on September 13 1973), writing a weekly column about disco for the music trade magazine Record World (1974-1979) and reporting about early clubs like David Mancuso's Loft for The Village Voice in the late 1970s and 1980s.

In the 1979 and 1980, Aletti also worked as the A&R man for Ray Caviano’s RFC Records. He was a senior editor at The Village Voice for nearly 20 years until leaving in early 2005.

These days, Vince Aletti reviews photography exhibitions for The New Yorker’s "Goings on About Town" section.
