Here you can find the FAQ for XLR8R’s subscription service. We will be adding to the FAQs as new questions are frequently asked.

What is the XLR8R subscription?

XLR8R is a member-supported community offering a subscription service that champions independent artists, journalism, and culture. 

Why should I subscribe?

Your subscription will directly support XLR8R and, in turn, independent artists, music, and journalism. XLR8R is an independently run magazine directly supported by our members. The subscription revenue will allow us to remain independent, whilst supporting emerging and established artists and running ad-free editorial (news, podcasts, and features). We decided to leave the grip of advertisers and instead create a self-supporting ecosystem—the new independent media.

You support—$3.99/month—will allow XLR8R to continue what it has done for over 27 years: find, curate, and serve the best electronic music out there, without paid influence.

How do I subscribe?

It’s easy and only takes a few minutes. In any browser, go to and fill out your details, including name, email, username, password, and payment details, and hit subscribe. That’s it.

What payment options do you have?

For security, we use Stripe for payments and they accept all major debit and credit cards from customers in every country.

What is the minimum subscription period?

One month is the minimum subscription term. Once you cancel, your subscription will last for the rest of the month (one month from the day you subscribed).

How can I cancel?

You can head to your account settings here to cancel. If you have any trouble, please email us at and we will help you out.
