Tidal price increase for DJ integrations

This isn’t good news. Tidal have just announced that they are increasing the price for DJ integrations. So if you use Tidal as a music source in say Rekordbox, then this will hit your pocket.

If you are in the UK then your price will increase as you need to buy an additional add on to the standard (new) price structure. Essentially it is £9/month more.

So they are making it easier by just having one price tier, but hammering DJs. We’d think this might well put many DJs off from using Tidal at all. For £19.99/month you could sign up for a DJ Pool and own the tracks forever.

Here’s the press release about the Tidal price increase

On April 10, 2024, we’re making it easier to enjoy best-in-class sound quality by combining our HiFi and HiFi Plus tiers into a single subscription tier called TIDAL, available for £10.99/month.
Our new TIDAL Individual plan now gives you access to our music library in full lossless, HiRes FLAC, and Dolby Atmos sound—for the same price of £10.99/month.
As part of our changes to streaming, DJ integrations will only be available to Individual plan subscribers as an add-on for an additional £9/month after April 10, 2024. You will receive extended access to DJ integrations on TIDAL until May 13, 2024.
Switch your plan to a TIDAL Individual plan with the DJ Extension after April 10, 2024 to continue using DJ integrations without interruption. Visit your subscription page at account.tidal.com.
You will see these changes reflected on your Subscription page at account.tidal.com on your first billing date on or after April 10, 2024. Thanks for choosing to be a TIDAL subscriber.
