About the project

We've reached 100% of our campaign goal!

 We want to thank each and every one of you for your support during those 40 days of campaign. THANK YOU!!

A very special thanks to Laurent Coulondre (our campaign godfather) and Offbeat (who especially came from the UK for a Bustle Music show in Paris), and also to our partners We See Production, Pixpocket, Guillaume Boittin and Hello Play!

The fair revolution of streaming has begun: thanks a lot again!

Bustle Music has been created by three music lovers, passionated by travelling: Cyrille, Benoît and Ludovic, following a quote of Platon: ‘if you want to know a people, listen to his music’. Between 2012 and 2014 they went for two musical voyages: ‘Bustle Around the World’. The idea to create Bustle Music came out whilst talking to musicians encountered halfway around the world.

Bustle Music is a fair internet music platform which tries to tackle three issues:

Explore the world by its music and musicians, and discover what’s currently happening in the music scene everywhere around the globe;

Support the development of local music scenes, where nowadays lots of countries lack of intellectual property law, or of an audience big enough to support the musicians;

Fill in the gap between the high level of streaming consumption and the low level of revenue artists actually get at the other end of the chain.

The website is a map of the world on which every musician can geo-localise his music tracks. Any curious, music lover, or traveller can freely browse the map to discover the world in music and contribute to supporting local music scenes.

Bustle Music is also a direct funding system for the artists called ‘stream & fund’. A minimum of 60% of the total income generated solely by subscription is redistributed among the artists proportionally to their popularity.

The project has grown bigger. After the explorations of the early ages, the creation of a golden team and our demo platform, which has been running with success over a year now, we’ve reached a new milestone. We are happy to develop the new version of the website; roll out by 6th December 2016!

Below is an inside view of how it will look like:

What are the funds for?

We’ve also got lots of ideas! We hope to reach 10 000 euros to unlock the way to new ambitions.

We would like todevelop a smartphone application  for Bustle Music to be accessible in areas in the world where internet mainly goes through mobile connections.  Necessary funding: +7 000 euros, spread as follow:

Finally we would like to run a new exploration campaignto identify artists and promote the platform among the music scene in Eastern Europe. We will go through Berlin, Prague, Krakow, Kiev, Chisinau, Bucharest, Sofia, Belgrade, Budapest, Zagreb and Ljubljana. Necessary funding: +10 000 euros, spread as follow:

We are offering a range of various types of subscription plans and compensations! Below is a glimpse of what you can expect:
