How can I get a YouTube Official Artist Channel (OAC)?

Lets make it official 🥳

You can easily request this via RouteNote, providing that you meet certain requirements.

To get an Official Artist Channel on YouTube, there are a few requirements that you’ll need to meet in order for us to request this with YouTube.

You’ll need the following before requesting an Official Artist Channel:

  • An owned & operated (O&O) YouTube channel;
    -Containing content only from the artist you’re requesting an Official Artist channel for – this may be your personal YouTube channel
    -Your O&O YouTube channel must have an identical artist name with your topic channel name
    -At least 1 official music video on your channel
    -Social media or other related links in the O&O about page
    -Musically focused content as the majority of content on the O&O channel
  • An automatically generated Topic Channel for your artist;
    -At least one track on your topic channel that matches with your O&O channel
    -At least 1 art track on your channel

If you already meet the criteria above, your channels may have been upgraded to an Official Artist Channel by YouTube automatically. You can check this by seeing if a music note symbol is located next to your channel name. If you have one, you’re in luck!

If you feel that you meet the criteria and would like to submit a request to upgrade your channel to an Official Artist Channel, please complete this form.

Please note! The email address used to fill out the form must be the email address associated to your RouteNote account.
