Paid content

MIDiA is currently fielding a survey for artists, podcasters, music executives, agents and managers (who are based in the US and UK) to learn about their biggest priorities, challenges, and unfulfilled needs when using major streaming services.

The results will be used to drive innovation towards developing a better, more effective experience for artists and their teams using streaming services — from release to data analytics, promotion and beyond. As such, this survey is your chance to share what you would like to see improved or changed about any part of the process.

Participants will also receive a free copy of MIDiA’s report “The Future of Music”, which is normally priced at £9,000 excl. VAT. In addition, three lucky participants will each win $1,000 in cash from our prize draw.

Click this link to start our survey. All responses are confidential, and it should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.
