What is TuneCore Accelerator?
TuneCore Accelerator is the powerhouse program built to help artists find new audiences and propel their fandom at each phase of development. The program and its development plans are built by TuneCore and leverage an arsenal of industry-leading services powered by our promotional teams, marketing programs, and innovative products, all designed with one simple objective: drive discovery of your music, build your audience, and promote deeper fan engagement.
On average, TuneCore artists who have opted into TuneCore Accelerator have seen their streams increase by over 30% on the streaming platforms where their tracks are activated in the program.
TuneCore Accelerator includes four plans for each phase of development:
- TuneCore START: Enables artists whose tracks garner less than 1,000 streams to find their first fans and maximize the potential reach of their early audiences.
- TuneCore AMPLIFY: Accelerates fan discovery for artists whose tracks have already surpassed 10,000 streams, taking them to the next level of audience growth.
- TuneCore BREAK: Levels up artists whose tracks have over 100,000 streams to break into their genre of music and propel fandom.
- TuneCore MAXIMIZE: Optimizes catalogs of artists whose tracks already have significant audience reach and streams to deepen fandom while also maximizing exposure and value of the catalog.

Please note: You cannot opt in to or out of any individual programs within TuneCore Accelerator. When you opt in, you are giving us permission to select tracks for promotional opportunities across TuneCore Accelerator. When you opt out, you’ll lose access to all of the TuneCore Accelerator services.
For tracks included in TuneCore Accelerator, a 20% commission will be applied to net royalties generated on the streams of tracks included in specific TuneCore Accelerator programs, and only during the period they are included and promoted in such programs. You will continue to keep 100% of revenue for streams not generated through TuneCore Accelerator.
You can opt in or out of TuneCore Accelerator at any time on a rolling basis. You must opt out before the 12th of the month to be sure your tracks are excluded from the next month's campaign. For example, if you do not want to be considered for the January campaign, you must opt out by December 12.
