2017 Christmas release dates & deadlines

Can you believe it’s almost the end of 2017 already? Neither can we!

To make the end of the year and the holiday period as enjoyable as possible, we wanted to let you know about the holiday opening times of some of our distribution partners.


Why do you need to know this?

Over the next few weeks delivery times and deadline dates will change, for iTunes in particular, and we would hate for anyone to be disappointed because their release did not go live on the date they were hoping for!

To avoid this, please see below for the cut off dates for you to upload your music to Spinnup.

Remember, these are the deadlines for a complete and error-free release.To be on the safe side, make sure you read our FAQs on how to create a release properly, and try to have it complete before the deadline date. This will avoid you having to make any corrections and risk missing the cut off!
