5.7 How do I get an Official Artist Channel on YouTube?

To obtain an Official Artist Channel (OAC) on YouTube, you must meet the following three criteria:

• You must be the owner of a YouTube channel for an artist or band.
• There must be at least three official releases on YouTube that are published and distributed through a music label.
• Your channel must not have any policy violations.

If you meet these three criteria, we can handle the OAC application for you. To do so, we need links to your channel, topic channel, and ideally, also to the Art Tracks.

Note: YouTube typically takes 2-3 weeks to process OAC applications. However, in some cases, it may take several months for your channel to be converted.
