Pandora Will Celebrate Its 10th Anniversary With 24 Hours of Ad-Free Listening
Next week, Pandora will celebrate its 10th anniversary by rewarding its dedicated listeners with 24 hours of ad-free streaming.
The service is calling its 10th birthday “Listener Love Day,” and it will kick off at 12AM EST on Sept. 9. Users in the U.S. will be able to stream music on the platform all day with zero ad interruptions.
“Listener Love Day is a celebration of a decade of connecting music fans to the artists that matter to them,” Pandora founder Tim Westergren said in a press release. “This is a thank you to each and every listener who has tuned in to Pandora over the past 10 years.”
“From the first song Pandora played in 2005 to the 50 billionth thumb we celebrated earlier this year, our mission has remained the same -- to provide each of our listeners with the best music experience possible, whether an old favorite or introducing them to a new artist and style of music,” Westergren added. “Listener Love Day is a celebration of not only our listeners, but a day dedicated to great music.”
In conjunction with Listener Love Day, Pandora has compiled the platform’s top-performing songs from the past decade on its “10x10 mixtape.”
Despite Apple Music and TIDAL recently entering the music-streaming marketplace, earlier this summer, Pandora announced its stock value grew 10 percent following its second quarter earnings and its listenership is nearing 80 million.
