Mixcloud operates a fair and legal streaming service in support of artists.
We accept almost all types of audio content over 15 minutes in length, including: talk and music radio shows; DJ sets and podcasts. The exception being full albums, which we are unable to host on Mixcloud. Please make sure that your upload is formatted as an MP3, AAC, M4A, MP4 audio or OGG file.
As a user-generated internet music platform, Mixcloud has a comprehensive licensing framework with rightsholders globally, including licenses with record labels, publishers, collecting societies and more. This allows creators to upload shows with licensed music and we will pay royalties to those rightsholders, who in turn distribute them to artists.
Please note that some shows may have their playback experience limited because of this. For more information on how to make sure free-to-use listeners can hear your shows, read more here.
