SoundCloud SoundCloud Go Arrives in Australia and New Zealand today

We’re excited to continue to roll out SoundCloud Go, our listener subscription, to audiences around the globe. Beginning today, SoundCloud Go is now available in Australia and New Zealand. SoundCloud Go brings listeners in Australia and New Zealand an expanded catalogue of more than 135 million tracks from some of the biggest and emerging artists from around the globe, with an ad and preview-free listening experience you can take offline.

Like previous launches in the UK, Ireland and France, today’s launch is part of our ongoing commitment to building an ecosystem where creators have opportunities to be paid for the work they share. So beginning today, the free SoundCloud listening experience in Australia and New Zealand will now be supported by advertising. When you hear an ad, artists get paid. 

SoundCloud Go is available in Australia and New Zealand on web, iOS App Store and Google Play, and priced at AU$11.99 / NZ$12.99 per month, with a free 30-day trial. iOS users can avoid the App Store surcharge (AU$14.99 / NZ$17.99 per month) by visiting soundcloud.com/go instead.

With SoundCloud Go, you take your listening experience to the next level with:

  • Offline and ad-free listening, and no previews. 
  • An expanded catalogue of more than 135 million tracks. You’ll get the best from artists signed to the biggest labels on the planet (like Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group, Merlin, and Warner Music Group, to name a few) right alongside the best of the unsigned and up-and-coming.
