Best Soundcloud Alternatives for 2016

Posted by on March 23, 2016


Ok, there’s been lots of news over the past few months about the end of Soundcloud and we wanted to put together a quick list of our favorite Soundcloud alternatives to check out. With all of the uncertainty, here are some great places to diversify where you’re connecting with fans:

Bandcamp – This has been around for a while now, and a great place to sell music. It definitely lacks some social features like repost’s and comments, but definitely a great place to sell music if you have a loyal fanbase. It might seem a bit old fashioned to use Bandcamp, but it’s a sure thing for selling music.

Mixcloud – An amazing place to post mixes, maybe not the best place to put all of your music, but a great home for your mixes. Lots of radio shows and DJ’s are using it and seems like an obvious fit for your set.

Fanburst – The newcomer we recently discovered with an awesome way to share Albums and EP’s. The best part about Fanburst is that it’s totally free and has a powerful set of analytics tools. Definitely worth checking out, it’s pretty much Soundcloud but free for artists.

YouTube – Let’s not forget about the king of music and video sharing, with the recent launch of YouTube Red and a massive user base, Youtube is a tip top place to put your music. While YouTube lacks some social features, it makes up in the userbase. YouTube should definitely be in your swiss army knife of services.
