Every artist can get an artist page Beatport. The requirements are basic but very important. First, the photograph MUST BE a professional artist photograph 590×404 JPG and you should also include an artist bio.
If these two requirements are met and you have music being sold on Beatport, then you’re good to go!
Similarly to the Artist Page, you can have your label profile updated too. In this case, you’ll need your picture requirement for Tile Image (500×500). // If you’re interested in updating yours, click here.
