Changes to Last.fm Subscriptions

Last.fm is making some important changes to subscriptions.

From 28th April, our subscription radio streaming service will come to an end. This means subscriber radio will no longer work on any platform or device. We’re making this change to focus on improving scrobbling and recommendations, while continuing our goal of being your #onemusichome. Of course you’ll still be able to listen to all of your favourite stations on the new Last.fm Player, as well as listen to your favourite tracks with our recently launched on-demand playback feature via Spotify.

In addition, we’re also updating the subscriptions package to include two new exclusive subscriber features - an awesome new tag filter feature on the Last.fm player enabling you to plug into any genre like never before and a sizable discount at the new Last.fm merchandise store where you can pick up a whole host of new Last.fm-branded goods.

Introducing tag filtering for the Last.fm Player

Exclusively for subscribers, you can now filter your stations by a specific tag. Filter your library by ‘electronic’ and re-live all those dancefloor beats you’d totally forgotten about. Filter your recommended station by ‘rock’ and discover the next Jim Morrison.

Coming Soon: Last.fm merchandise

We’re launching the first ever Last.fm merchandise store and to say thank you for subscribing we’re giving you an exclusive 30% off everything, whenever you like. We’re also going to be introducing some personalised ‘subscriber only’ merch in the future, so keep your eyes peeled.

The total package

  • Tag filtering – filter your stations by tags to really drill deep into your music playback experience
  • 30% discount on Last.fm merchandise
  • No banner ads across the Last.fm site and apps (excluding ads on 3rd party content from YouTube, Spotify, Vevo, etc.)
  • Early access to new things we’re testing out in the Last.fm Labs
  • See who has been checking you out – see “recent visitors” to your profile
  • Show you’re a subscriber with a black badge on your profile picture
