4 New ways for artists to earn money

Global Rockstar is made by artists for artists. We know exactly about the ridiculous revenues from streaming services.
Our mission is to offer new ways to monetize musical content.

Artists earn money with every paid vote

All around the world, people spend millions in TV-voting shows but neither the artists nor the voters get anything in return.

We changed that!

How it works

Global Rockstar has created a fair model for all: Our artists get 50% of the net revenues from paid votes. The voter gets songs and other rewards in return.

Both contest and voting start on October 1, 2015.

Artists earn money with Crowdsupport

Global Rockstar has created a new way to support musicians. We call it Crowdsupport.

How does it work?

How Crowdsupport works

Artists create a project calling for support for their next single, album, tour or video. Fans support the artists by purchasing exclusive merchandise products like signed CDs or handwritten lyrics, delivered by the artists whether or not the artists reach their funding goals.

This feature will be available July 2015.

Artists earn money with Brandsupport

Global Rockstar brings artists and brands together.

How Brandsupport works

We present the best songs to music-loving brands, which can support an artist by acting as his or her sponsor throughout a contest.

The brand gets to license the song for use in its marketing or, alternatively, the artist can endorse the brand’s products. The artist gets 2,500 US $ for each Brandsupport deal made.

Artists sell their music directly to fans

Global Rockstar allows artists to easily create personalized webpages where they can sell their music directly to fans online.

How it works

On Global Rockstar, artists get a better share of the sales than in any other download-store in the world.

On the personalized page, a fan can listen to the artist‘s music using the Global Rockstar Media Player, which will have an integrated purchasing and social-media sharing functionality.

This feature will be available August 2015.

Last year, over 7000 artists and bands from 140 countries participated in Global Rockstar 2014 – the world’s largest online music contest. Many of these acts came from countries that aren’t big players in the global music business, like Bahrain, Mongolia, Tanzania, Peru or Slovakia. Some were local heroes already, but hadn’t had the chance to grow beyond their borders. We gave them a global stage and many of them gained lots of new fans and supporters from countries they couldn’t reach before.

Success stories

We help artists to grow their international fanbase and to earn money

The winner from Global Rockstar 2014, Jhanniel from Argentina, won 25,000 US $ and a publishing contract with Global Rockstar Music. Today, Jhanniel is promoted in radio stations in 25 countries in Europe and we’re currently working on his Tour across Europe.

The Austrian national finalists, Laurin & Nico, got noticed in Japan through the contest and soon found themselves in the Top 10 of the Japanese iTunes charts.

Another Global Rockstar artist, Zoe, participated in the finals of the national pre-selections for the Eurovision Song Contest 2015.
