Over 70 million tracks and half a million articles

Qobuz was founded in 2007 with a mission to provide all music lovers and audiophiles with a musical experience based on excellent audio quality and content of unparalleled richness. Qobuz’s music library currently contains over 70 million tracks. Qobuz also features half a million of articles created and selected by a team of experts, consisting of biographies, musical booklets, album reviews, and interviews. A true cultural resource, Qobuz offers a unique and cutting-edge offer to (re)discover iconic artists or young talents with varied musical styles, both local and international. As a part of Qobuz’s announced expansion today, the editorial team has introduced more than 100 new playlists featuring local artists from each new country that are available to subscribers around the world.


“Our ambition is to make Qobuz THE global benchmark for high-quality music streaming and download platforms. Today we are pleased to bring our offering to markets where the expectation for a premium service such as ours exists and is growing. Far from a simple streaming service that gives music to consume, Qobuz aims to bring music back to its true value by offering its subscribers the best of music. In mature markets such as Australia, New Zealand, and Northern Europe, these new locations are highly strategic for Qobuz in the context of our international expansion.” - Georges Fornay, Deputy CEO of Qobuz.
