Campaign unsuccessfully ended on: 29 Oct,2013
We need your help amplifying the voices of independent musicians in the Middle East and North Africa!
Mideast Tunes is a platform showcasing a diverse range of underground musicians from throughout our region. Founded in 2010 in Bahrain, a small team of volunteers have worked tirelessly to build the go-to resource to discover these largely unknown talents. To date, we have gathered over 1,000 unique bands and over 5,000 tracks for you to be inspired by and enjoy. Our FREE iOS and Android apps are used by dozens of thousands of active listeners.
But we need your support to get going!
Mideast Tunes is completely FREE to use, and we don't even use ads! That's because we care about you, our dear musicians and listeners, and we value our independence from corporations. But it doesn't mean it's free to run. We have to pay hosting costs and other fees that come with running the website (upgrades, maintenance, and ongoing development.) Every other month we release a series of unique features - but we need your help to release these upcoming ones which will allow us to reach even more people:
Mideast Tunes is not just a music streaming website. Many bands rely on it for exposure and press coverage. We have partnered with Shazam, meaning any band that wish to submit their tracks to be discovered are able to do so at no charge. We also have a partnership with Radio Netherlands Worldwide and other pending radio stations, meaning many bands get airtime on local and international stations, increasing their chances of being heard and discovered! And we stress that it's all done for FREE - listeners listen for free, and bands get these perks for free. Why? Because we care about the regional music scene and want to see it grow and succeed. We REALLY appreciate these musicians and what they contribute to society. This platform is a gift to them. By helping us improve this service, you're empowering the entire underground music scene - by making it far more discoverable.
