Viberate Estimates 99% Of Musicians Will Be On Platform In Five Years


Tuesday, November 26th, 2019 |

Viberate is estimating that 99% of musicians will be on its platform in the next five years.

The platform, designed to match musicians with event organizers, features over a million profiles of artists, venues, events, and festivals. Thanks to 20,000 contributors, it took Viberate only a few years to get from a boutique DJ directory to the world’s largest platform for live music. By 2025 almost every single musician will be featured on it.

It features over 2,000 booking agencies, 130,000 venues, 5,000 festivals and 500,000 events, analyzing billions of data points from streaming sites, social media, ticket vendors, and other important sources.

“Unlike similar services, we try to stay away from automatically scraping large sources to get content and new profiles because that creates a mess. With millions of artists and venues out there, you have to do it manually, and this calls for help from the community,” explains co-founder UMEK.

The crowd-sourcing approach encourages everyone to get involved and map the global live music scene. Anyone can log in and add missing musicians, venues, or events. After the editorial team checks the entry for relevance, the profile will go live.

“It’s great to contribute and include talent, regardless if an artist is my cup of tea or not, since everybody has the right to be featured.“ says Camilo, a DJ and one of the company’s top contributors.

Viberate offers some rewards for those who are quite active with merch, festival tickets, or other goodies. The very best can get hired by the company.

Before there was Ultra Music Festival, there was The Winter Music Conference, the annual coming together of the dance music tribes. Miami in March is a fundamental place to be from a business perspective, and has always given me endless opportunities for discovering new partnerships and talent. WMC brings together the dance music industry and surrounding culture like no other event in America. I’ve been attending WMC for nearly 20 years, and I’m very much looking forward to experiencing its evolution in 2019.

If you want to know about our industry from the people that make it happen then go to WMC. It’s an accelerated masterclass in all things dance music.

DJ/Intec Records

Winter Music Conference was the cream of the crop of conferences. Every label owner, label A&R, DJ and artist knew they had to go network at the Fontainebleau where the conference was hosted. The conference was not only one of the most important time of the year as it relates to dance music but it was also a place where records were broken and became summer hits. Some of my best DJ memories are from the events I played during WMC in the last 20 years.

I’m so glad to see WMC rebooted with such thoughtful content and first-class curation. It’s been a long time since the industry had a must-do American event and this is it. The reborn WMC!

Ultra Music

I first went to WMC ’87, the year I started Big Beat. It was an incredibly inspiring congregation of indie labels, DJs, artists, songwriters, producers and dance music lovers dedicated to breaking and discovering new music. WMC has been instrumental in furthering the dance and electronic cause; keeping the community connected, vital and relevant, and serving as an amazing springboard for talent. It’s a fantastic crucible for the future of dance music. Long may it live.
