Requirements to move to YouTube

Since we joined YouTube, we’ve been working with the team on the development of all-new features that will help artists better connect with their fans on YouTube. To gain access to these features as they launch, you must create an artist profile on YouTube by transferring your BandPage profile’s photos and bio.


By creating a YouTube artist profile you'll be able to:

  • Manage your artist profile in the new Artist Center in the YouTube Creator Studio.

  • Be eligible for new YouTube features coming in 2017 specifically for artists.


To ensure your BandPage profile is eligible for transferring your photos and bio to YouTube, you must have:

  1. A profile photo or biography on your BandPage profile, AND

  2. Admin access to the profile you wish to transfer. Users with Editor access will not be eligible to migrate. Learn how to adjust admin settings here.


Once a profile has satisfied these eligibility requirements, you may begin the transfer of that profile’s content to YouTube here.

For additional questions, please see our Help Center here or reach out to us with any questions here.
