Jamendo is a music community where artists share their music with the rest of the community. Users can download and play the songs without having to pay money to do so.
The service has an index of more than 200000 tracks to chose from, and the social networking elements like tagging and reviewing make it easy to discover new and interesting music. Users who want to give back can support artists in numerous ways including donations, sharing or becoming a fan.
Jamendo Pro is not a service to make end users pay for extra services at Jamendo. It is a service for businesses, shops and projects to save big on performance rights fees. To be more precise: Jamendo does not charge any performance right fees and the prices to play Jamendo music in a project or location are considerably lower than those of performance rights organizations.
Jamendo has partnered up with several recognized brands such as Ducati, Yves Rocher, Skoda or tv channels like Arte or France 2.
JAMENDO PRO is:
original music from over 60 countries
- pop, jazz, lounge, electro, classical and more
a competitive offer:
- from 3 euros for music synchronization on a video
- from 96 euros a year for background music for a public place
- no fees to pay to performance rights organizations!
artists on Jamendo PRO are not members of any of these organizations
an acclaimed, simple and quick service:
- purchase online with our Jamendo PRO interface
- enjoy immediate use of the music
- delivery of an internationally recognized certificate guaranteeing you have paid all the rights to use the music
Jamendo Pro can be an interesting offer for businesses, shops and projects that would like to cut down on their music license costs.
You can play any song on the Jamendo website before you grab a license. This allows you to preview the offering, and find suitable songs for your projects.
Update: Jamendo Pro is now called Jamendo Licensing. Pricing starts at €4.99 per month for stores with less than 50m², and €19.99 per month for a store between 401m² and 1000m².
