Welcome to MusicBrainz!
MusicBrainz is an open music encyclopedia that collects music metadata and makes it available to the public.
MusicBrainz aims to be:
- The ultimate source of music information by allowing anyone to contribute and releasing the data under open licenses.
- The universal lingua franca for music by providing a reliable and unambiguous form of music identification, enabling both people and machines to have meaningful conversations about music.
Like Wikipedia, MusicBrainz is maintained by a global community of users and we want everyone — including you — to participate and contribute.
MusicBrainz is operated by the MetaBrainz Foundation, a California based 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit corporation dedicated to keeping MusicBrainz free and open source.
