Demo submissions must be sent directly to UMG’s record labels, but please note that our labels are unable to accept unsolicited material. Typically, demos are recommended to one of our labels’ A&R departments by a manager, agent, producer, radio DJ or other industry professional.
Per UMG’s Code of Conduct, employees will never request or accept anything of value or additional compensation in exchange for music submission, securing a contract, or any other activities in which UMG is engaged. If anyone claiming to be affiliated with UMG fraudulently demands money from you to submit a demo, or as a purported “contract fee” or to defray “travel costs,” please be aware that this is a scam. You can report these individuals to us at here (firstname.lastname@example.org).
