As we prepare for our 5th birthday party here in the 8tracks loft, we thought it’d be fun to show you the steady — and now accelerating — growth that you’ve helped us achieve.
8tracks reached 5m streaming hours *per month* in Nov 2011 — 40 months after its launch in Aug 2008. We reached 10m hours by Sep 2012 — 10 months later — and 15m hours in half that time. We added another 5m hours in only 2 months and now consistently top 20m streaming hours per month.
Thanks again for your dedicated listenership! We look forward to making 8tracks an even better place to discover and enjoy music in the days and years to come.
