The Music Crowdfunding Survey 2015 is online

A few days ago I have finally completed the 2015 Music Crowdfunding Survey of music+crowdfunding and 50K MUSIC MAG and have posted it online.

The survey among music crowdfunding supporters has the objective to create a reliable information base pertaining to the topic. The focal points are the demands made towards crowdfunding platforms as well as the degree of satisfaction with such platforms, the motivation of the supporters and the amount of financial funding they provide. However, it also measures how satisfied the supporters are with the performances of the musicians and bands that they support. This includes not only the piece of music which is presented at the end of the project, but also the rewards, meaning the thank you gift offered by the artists in addition to the musical product.

Furthermore, I would also like to confirm (or possibly disprove) some of my own observations made in the field of music crowdfunding through this survey. For example, it can be seen that even larger platforms such as Kickstarter mainly attract projects from their countries of origin. The lesser-knowns such as Musicraiser, wemakeit, AKAmusic, MyMajorCompany and Startnext have also not been able to break this pattern, at least as far as music projects are concerned.

I hope that many music crowdfunding supporters will take part in the survey in order to gain a more comprehensive understanding of this crowd funding area. Click here to take the survey …. And please share the link: … #mcfS2015
