ACID STAG is very proud to be one of Australia’s leading independent music news platforms. We have a passion for discovering and sharing new music from all across the globe each and every day, and while our tastes can be quite diverse the quality of music is always guaranteed 🎶

OUR SOUND:
Electro, House, Indie-Dance, Disco, Indietronica, Alternative-R&B/Soul, Vapor Soul etc.

SUBMISSIONS:
Our submission portal is the best way to have your music considered for a placement on our site and it also guarantees a response/feedback. 

We do still accept email submissions however we receive a high-volume of emails every day and it’s just not possible to respond to everyone (best to use the submission portal above). 


SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

We generally ignore all submissions that don’t follow our guidelines so please do some research; 

we require Soundcloud links for all submissions (no exceptions)
you must also include; artwork, press photo, release info & a quote from the artist.

● Feel free to follow-up with us but do it once only and not within 5 days of your original submission; we need at least a week to process everything coming in.

Always start a new email for each new submission with corresponding subject-line i.e. do not group multiple submissions by different artists into one email or via a previous submission thread

We love making new friends so personal emails get our attention over automated mail-outs; in-fact we will unsubscribe from any automated lists

● Premiere requests are more than welcome; we generally need at least 5 days notice, we don’t require any exclusivity time however the premiere will need to be scheduled to suit AEST time-zone (Sydney, Australia)

Do not send us unreleased music; unless it’s for a premiere request.

● Album/EP previews are accepted for reviewing consideration but you must provide a Soundcloud link.

● All songs that are featured on the site are also included in our weekly “Acid Stag Radio” playlist on Spotify Apple Music 

Support the Supporters; if we’re supporting your music across our network we feel it’s only fair that you return the favour and support us across your own. Following our social media channels is a great way to show your appreciation and by re-sharing our social media posts you will help maximise your exposure across the combined audiences, which means more plays and attention for all of us.

We also use SUBMITHUB & GROOVER as secondary submission tools.
