Festive Period – Distribution Deadlines

Ahead of the festive period, digital services can experience higher volumes of releases delivered, and therefore longer processing times, followed by a period of holiday shutdown. Therefore, delivery deadlines are put in place to try to ensure your music is processed in time for your release date.

The deadlines are as follows:

Release Date: | Delivery Deadline:
04-December 2015 | 20-November 2015
11-December 2015 | 20-November 2015
18-December 2015 | 11-December 2015
25-December 2015 | 11-December 2015
01-January 2016 | 11-December 2015
08-January 2016 | 18-December 2015

In addition, some services may not accept content deliveries (including updates and takedowns) between December 19th and January 3rd. As usual, we ask that you try to give us as much time as possible ahead of release date to deliver your music to services, especially at this time of year. We will, of course, do our best to accommodate any requests but please note that if a particular delivery deadline is missed, we cannot guarantee exactly when the release will go live on digital services.

The deadlines stated above are when EmuBands must deliver releases to each digital service, so please factor in extra time in case there are any issues with your release that we need to clarify with you ahead of distribution.

EmuBands will be closed on the following days:
Thursday 24th December to Sunday 27th December (inclusive)
Thursday 31st December to Sunday 3rd January (inclusive)

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your account manager at EmuBands.
