Distrokid, one of the leading music distribution services, has recently announced a 15% price increase across all of its plans. This news has come as a surprise to many of its customers, who are now left wondering how this change will impact their music careers.

Distrokid’s previous pricing structure was based on an annual subscription fee, with different plans offering various features and services. With this recent increase, the cost of the basic plan will go up from $19.99 to $22.99, while the Musician Plus plan will increase from $35.99 to $41.49 per year.

Distrokid has cited several reasons for this price increase, including rising overhead costs and the need to invest in new technology and features to stay competitive in the music distribution market. Despite these reasons, some customers are concerned that the price hike will disproportionately impact smaller independent artists and labels.
