Leaving a mark on the music scene is now possible even if your voice doesn’t give people goosebumps and nobody will ever play your song at their wedding. Being a music artist doesn’t hurt, but knowledge and passion is what counts the most when it comes to joining Viberate’s community of contributors.

Viberate.com is a platform connecting artists and music professionals, making sure all the artists (big and underrated alike) are equally represented. None of that would be possible without our network of music lovers, who are constantly shining a light on new artists, venues, festivals, and events. At the moment, we have more than 20,000 contributors from over 160 countries around the world, who have joined the movement building the biggest music community in the world.

Here’s everything you need to know.

Why do we do it?

Imagine Rolling Stones hadn’t managed to record “Wild Horses” because Mick and Keith were working double shifts. How many iconic songs wouldn’t have seen the light of day if real artists just didn’t have the time to write them? The ones that make it easier to get through heartbreak, or the ones that can act as a time machine? Quite a travesty for all music lovers.

That’s where you come in.

You can join our music community of contributors in building a platform where artists can gain knowledge, grow their career, and ultimately achieve the dream of every musician who wants to go pro: to quit their nine-to-five job and focus on their career.

To help paint the picture: 5,000+ data points are entered daily, and our contributors have created over a million profiles of artists, music venues, events, and festivals so far.

Three reasons why you should join us

1. Want to support your local bands?

Help your local community of musicians and make sure they’re represented on a global music platform. Getting exposure is the first step. A lot of artists don’t have the means to create their own website, but on Viberate, they get their own ID with links to all their social media channels and streaming sites, top performing content, and events. They can also use the ID link as a one-pager for pitching new gigs and getting to a new level.

2. Be a part of your favorite artists’ success

Make sure your favorite artists stand out with a full profile. The more people get to know them, the more likely it is they’ll be noticed by the right people and blow up. And imagine telling your children how you were among the first who recognized the potential of a future superstar.

3. Are you a smartass?

Are you the one in your group of friends who’s always ready to jump in with a music fact? Do you know how to solve a mystery in the realm of: “Which genre is Billie Eilish, anyway?” Do people turn to you when they’re looking for fresh music and you’ve got a batch of promising up-and-comers ready to go? Can you assist with top music venues off the cuff?

Viberate is the place for you. Whenever your friends and family get fed up with listening to your music wisdom, we’re here for it.

Let’s play

We’re spicing it up. While adding and editing profiles on Viberate.com, you’ll collect points and badges all the way to the “master” level. The best contributors will be rewarded and recognized on our monthly chart of Top 10 contributors. This is exactly how it works.

Check out our special badges:

By combining different types of badges, you can get the ones that really stand out and even reach the level of “Godlike Contributor”.

Some of you will also have the opportunity to become our pro contributors and turn your hobby into a full-time job. Over 50 people worldwide already share the passion. One of them is Camilo Bernheim from Nicaragua, who started as our regular contributor and has since been promoted to one of the heads of our external Latin American team.
