Can anyone submit music or comedy to Pandora?Pandora welcomes all independent artists from all backgrounds and working styles to submit their music or comedy for possible inclusion on Pandora.  We thrive on connecting artists and listeners – allowing artists to be discovered by new audiences and introducing our listeners to new artists and their recordings they may have never heard of before. 

How do I submit my music or comedy to Pandora? After you sign in with your Pandora listener account, all it takes is a few simple steps to send us your tracks:

  1. Provide us with your basic contact information
  2. Give us details about your submission including your name, release information and link to your track
  3. Ensure that you have legal rights to your work and it is available on iTunes (US only), Amazon.com/MP3, CD Baby or Bandcamp
  4. Verify your account

Where is the submission form located on Pandora? You can go directly to submit.pandora.com or the Submit Your Music link in the footer of the web page.

What is different about the new submissions process? The new system is simple and digital. With the new submissions process, you no longer need a CD available on amazon and UPC for your music or comedy.  In a few clicks, your work is sent directly to our Curation team for review. Approved submissions are purchased and ingested from a digital music source. 

What do I need to submit my music or comedy to Pandora? Here’s what you need to have in hand to successfully submit to Pandora:
  1. Pandora listener account
  2. Contact information
  3. Artist/band name
  4. Name and type of release (Album, EP, or Single)
  5. Valid link to one of your tracks on iTunes (US only), Amazon.com/MP3, CD Baby or Bandcamp from the release you are currently submitting 
 

How many submissions can I send in at a time? If you are an artist submitting on your own behalf you may have one submission in our system at a time. If your submission is approved, please wait to submit more recordings until you are live in Pandora.  If your submission was not approved, you may start the submissions process again and provide us with a different release for review.


Can I cancel my submission? Yes, if you are in the process of completing your submissions form, you can close the page to begin the cancellation process.  You will be asked if you want to cancel as confirmation.  If you choose Cancel Submission, your work will not be reviewed for inclusion on Pandora.  

If you decide to cancel your submission after we have received your information, you may
 resubmit that same release at a later time without being blocked.

If you live outside of the US, Australia and New Zealand you can still submit your music or comedy to Pandora for consideration.
