The music industry has changed a lot in recent years. With the power of home computers and technological advances in software, the cost of getting into the music business are now next to nothing. Getting your music out there to an online audience of millions is just a matter of clicks. With this ease, also comes new problems and this is where we start.
We are convinced that a great future challenge is to link communities in virtual – and real life sustainably, especially when it comes to music presentation.
BerlinMusicStation is the first music platform worldwide, that brings online (on the web) and offline (on stage), music together. We provide music streaming and voting for gigs at the same time.
The action online translates into offline action.
With BerlinMusicStation music is no longer just limited to “Like” “Repost” or “Comment” functions, but rather turns into live music. BerlinMusicStation establishes a direct link between music creators and the audience. Music deserves a platform that is tangible and live.
Artists are invited to upload their music. After that, they can publish it on the “FLOOR” , where the audience can listen to the music and vote for it.
Artists finally have the opportunity to present their music online as well as offline (on stage), while consumers have the ‘power’ to put together their musical event. With their vote they decide which artists will present their music live on stage.
In this digital age there is a need for a platform that creates the missing link between creators of music and consumers in virtual- and real life. Music as a cultural asset deserves a platform that is straightforward and live. So many independent artists are out there creating wonderful music, but very few get a chance to perform live. So why not build a platform and bring composers and the audience together and add value to their composition. Our goal is to establish a new form of concert. Our music is not performed on the basis of popularity or sales but rather on the basis of your vote – without detours, straightforward and from a single source.
There are two groups of users: artists and audience.
Independent artists can create an account (free of charge) with us and upload their music. They have the option to publish their titles on the “FLOOR”, where the audience can listen to – and vote for it. As long as a track has not received any votes it can be deleted from the “FLOOR”.
Listeners (the audience) can create their audience account (free of charge) with us. They have the opportunity to vote for music they like on the “FLOOR”. One vote per track can be assigned. The “FLOOR” area is the heart of BerlinMusicStation. It is the place where the principle of the platform – from online to “on Stage” – originates.
There will be a countdown for each event. This countdown closes about 15 days before the event, by which time voting is concluded. The event concept includes the occurring artists, location, date & time and is published in “NEWS/EVENTS“.
The six or seven artists that have received the most VotingPoints, will be selected for the event. Whether six or seven is depending on the event.
24 hours after the end of a countdown the next event will be announced and voting starts again.
The tracks, that will be presented on stage, lose their VotingPoints. All other tracks keep their VotingPoints.
Music pulsates in each of us and music connects people. In a vibrant and thriving city like Berlin, full of musical creativity, there is a need for a platform not only for the music, but also for the artists and the audience, who want to listen and discover new music.
In this sense, music enthusiasts, let us share and enhance what is connects us!
We will always update the platform to adapt it to its users’ needs for optimum functionality. So if you have any questions, comments, or other feedback, email us to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
