Viberate is a music data company headquartered in Slovenia.

It was founded in 2015 by Vasja Veber, Matej Gregorčič and Slovenian techno DJ UMEK (Uroš Umek).

The company counts 35 full-time employees, plus around 120 external database curators.

The Viberate Analytics platform offers stats on hundreds of thousands of artists, labels, venues, festivals, and around 60 million songs.

The company also works with thousands of clients, including major record companies, indy labels, DSPs, distributors, promoters and more.

In June 2023, the company launched its Viberate for Artists platform for independent musicians.

The platform offers music distribution to all major streaming platforms, plus booking and promotion tools, playlist and festival pitching, a free one-sheet tool, and professional artist analytics covering streaming and social media channels.

Viberate offers funding for independent musicians via the hub in the form of advances of up to $1 million on future streaming royalties.

In May 2023, Viberate launched an artist chart targeted for use by A&R teams, featuring genre, performance, fanbase, and geolocation filters.

Viberate claims that the chart makes it easier to discover new talent around the world. It’s informed by streaming and social media data and can be filtered by country, genre, and performance.

In January 2023, Viberate cut the cost of its full service from $129 per month to $9.90.

The company described the move as “scary, but the right thing to do”, claiming that it would help make the music industry more inclusive and access to game-changing data tools more democratic.Music Business Worldwide
