Your Support Matters

As the algorithm takes over, real music community is more important than ever.

Over the last eight years, we’ve thrown events, sold merchandise, collaborated with brand partners, and received funding from private individuals and the Arts Council. This has kept NTS running 24/7 and protected our creative freedom. It has also given a platform to thousands of artists and resident DJs, most of whom part-own NTS. But as more people tune in around the world, our music licensing fees go up, and the pressures on our streaming infrastructure increase.

NTS is dedicated to helping people discover incredible music. To stay ad-free and keep innovating, we need a little help from our friends.

Yes, but we will remind you before your NTS Friends membership renews. If you are buying NTS Friends as a gift, the membership will not renew automatically.

If you decide you don’t want to continue being an NTS Friend after one year, log in to MY NTS to cancel at any time.

Once you click “buy as a gift” and enter your payment details, you will have the option to enter a name and postal address of your choosing. The package will come with an explanatory gift note and a unique code, so that the receiver can access all of the NTS Friends benefits.

Go to and click on the “activate” button. On the next page, click “add coupon”. Here, you need to enter your unique coupon code, which you can find on the gift note you received together with your prints and black metal card.

Please note, you do not need to enter your payment card details here, as someone has already paid for this for you. After this point you can set up login details for your MY NTS account, just follow the instructions on screen.

Definitely, please get in touch with

We’re starting small, but we have plans to launch a wider listener support programme next year. Founder Friends will always get a little extra, as thanks for backing us at the very beginning.

Global music licensing fees, streaming infrastructure, studio maintenance, building new tech features, the costs of creating thousands of hours of great radio, and the 30 NTS staff that keep it all going. Keeping NTS weird and original isn’t cheap, and we want to maintain our creative integrity.

Sure, please email
