Quick Guide for Sponsors

fanatic.fm is a web-based platform for branded music. Brands can sponsor an artist’s album or singles, and when fans play the music, the sponsor pays the artist out of a pre-determined budget. The artist and fanatic.fm also donate part of the proceeds to a charity. Our model lets brands advance beyond product-consumer relationships and tap into the affinity that forms between true fans and musicians.
