You can now easily discover which shows are trending near and far in the Mixcloud charts.
Every minute, over three hours of content is uploaded to Mixcloud by creators across the globe. Over 20 million people from almost every country listen to these shows every month. Over 15 million radio shows, DJ mixes and podcasts exist on Mixcloud, spanning every genre and theme you can think of.
As our community of creators and listeners continues to grow and diversify, we’ve heard the need for the Trending charts to better reflect different scenes around the globe. For this reason, you can now filter the charts based on your current location and our top listening countries around the world.
For listeners, the charts are an excellent way to discover fresh shows that are popular at any moment. For creators, they’re a powerful tool to get your shows heard and grow your audience. Here’s how you can get even more from your Mixcloud experience with the new localised charts.
When you hit Trending from your Mixcloud homepage, you’ll notice the charts now automatically show you what’s hot in your country. You can filter and browse according to different countries around the world from the dropdown, or revert back to the global charts if you wish. A novel way to expand your horizons!
Take your discovery a step further by browsing shows according to genre tags and location. Hit Categories on your Mixcloud toolbar or head to mixcloud.com/discover and you’ll see that your search results include the localised charts.
Whether you want to know which jazz shows are hot in Japan, what the trap scene in Thailand is listening to, or what indie shows are picking up in Italy, you audio culture discovery just got that much more interesting.
A show rises in the charts due to overall listener engagement. Creators, now that the charts are localised, you have more opportunities to gain traction across different charts, rather than competing for the global charts. Also, this gives you the opportunity to better understand who’s listening around the world.
