We are
Polaris Hub

Every song forges a path, linking its creator to its listeners. With digital music consumption, that link can be incredibly complex, involving many different rights, territories and music services, as well as massive usage reports. In 2013, the Nordic societies Koda, Teosto, and TONO partnered to establish Polaris Hub, an alliance whose goal was, creating new solutions and collaborating on processes.

Creating waves in the music industry

Polaris Hub is an alliance between Nordic collection societies KODA, TEOSTO and TONO. The initiative began in 2013 while aiming to create solutions and collaborate on simplifying processes within a complex music industry. Officially established in 2018, Polaris Hub provides a single point of contact for global music platforms to obtain a licence to use the repertoire, against fair remuneration.
