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.

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.


Carl Cox

DJ/Intec Records

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.


Craig Kallman

CEO & Co-Chairman Atlantic Records, Founder Big Beat Records

Having only missed the very first year of WMC in 1985, it was 1986-1990 that initially placed me on the map globally due to the international attendance of the entire dance music community. All throughout the 90s I was often getting written about by various high profile mags and websites for having contributed to help break many artists, DJs, producers and remixers. WMC enabled me to bring many top industry people together all under one roof, especially at Groove Jet, where house music officially met Techno in my sets and it’s all been uphill since…TBC


Danny Tenaglia

DJ, Producer

Miami has always been a place I’ve considered home and WMC was essential for me and the label in many ways. From showcasing our new music to keeping up with all the new artists and releases. It was the official kickoff of the year and I’m happy to see it thriving again.
