Gimme Shelter
How can I support artists with Qobuz? 

What’s the purpose of Gimme Shelter? 

Gimme Shelter is Qobuz’s way to give back to the music community and support artists. The impact of the global Covid-19 pandemic is affecting each and every one of us. Musical artists are particularly hard hit due to the complete shutdown of the live music industry. 

Qobuz provides a unique music service to an extremely demanding audience. The easiest way for us to give back to the music community is to keep on making music available. We have identified a number of ways to create additional value for artists while we do what we do best. 

The purpose of the Gimme Shelter campaign is to help support the music creative community during this tough period.
