Keep on Rockin’ in the Free World
20Hz is on a mission for live streaming to become the harmony to the artist’s melody. For musicians to get paid for doing what they love. To bring unity to the music community.
The world of the musician has changed. For what was once the journey of write, record, release, and tour,
now leaves itself open and free for adaptation.
About 20Hz

20Hz is a not-for-profit live streaming service, bringing fans and artists together through a platform dedicated to supporting the industry. Our community is based on interaction, togetherness, and that sonic love of how music makes us feel.

With a focus on supporting both artists and fans in these uncertain times, 20Hz brings them together through clear lines of communication and live streaming excellence offering the following 4 pillars:

  • Trust - a reliable and secure live streaming platform, devoted to music lovers
  • Communicate - creating relationships through an engaging online experience
  • Grow - diving into discovery with multi-artist events hosted on virtual, genre-specific stages
  • Donate - rewarding one another through ticket sales, donations, merchandise sales, and exclusive content

20Hz is the place for artists to make money while having their content and merchandise in a single website completely under their control.

Why 20Hz?

We understand that the world of music has changed, that creativity cannot survive on exposure alone. With this in mind, we developed 20Hz, a place for artists to monetise content within a single website that is completely under their control.

With low streaming fees, quick payouts and no contracts, we want to be the new tool in your gig bag to make money with your music, safely knowing that you’re joining a community that reinvests into talent and creativity.

20Hz also offers marketing tools to help build your audience. From free listings and social media highlights, to access to your streaming data and statistics - 20Hz will help maximise and monetize your expanding portfolio of work.

So, whether it’s through a tip jar, ticketed performance or premium access to exclusive content, we give the tools needed to support you, the artist, directly.

We want the music to continue to play.

Let’s give life back to music.

Let's Talk Money
The Cost of Live Streaming

Giving a live performance on 20Hz is free, if either of these criteria are met:

  • You have been registered with 20Hz for less than 3 months
  • 2 of your last 3 events attracted more than 50 viewers

In all other cases, there is a cost of £2 for each 15 minutes of live streaming.

Where Does the Money Go?

20Hz distribute 70% of the revenue generated by each Artist to the Artist, with 20Hz retaining 30% to keep the platform up and running.

Any surplus from 20Hz's share will be used to advertise, market, improve and develop the platform. If this surplus gets too large, the percentage of revenue distributed to Artists will be increased to a level that keeps 20Hz running without making a profit.

One of the key benefits of 20Hz is the support that the community of Artists provide to each other, in that successful Artists will effectively be subsidising Artists who are on the way up.

Revenue streams for Artists can be generated using these features of 20Hz.

  • Donations made during live streams
  • Donations made on other pages within the Artist's website
  • Advertising banners shown during an Artist's live performance
  • Advertising banners shown on other pages within the Artist's website
  • In-video advertising shown at the start of an Artist's live performance
  • In-video advertising shown at the start of videos played within the Artist's website
  • Sponsorship, either personal or corporate
