What is the industry average?
Rockbot’s average song length is 3 min which is approximately 20 songs per hour. Rockbot has many controls in place to prevent song, and artist repetition, however, we recommend at least 50 hours (~1,000 songs) to get started.
For your reference, the industry average to reduce the feeling of repetition is a minimum of 100-120 hours of music or 2,000-2,400 songs in rotation. This number can vary a little based on the number of hours you are open and the diversity of your playlists.
How to prevent music repetition at your venue:
- Increase the number of playlists and/or songs in your station. To increase the songs in your music rotation, we recommend adding additional playlists (Music Icon > Your Stations > Add Playlist) to your station(s) and/or syncing up a Spotify/iTunes playlist.
- Check if you have an Energy Filter on. Log into your Web Dashboard at Rockbot.com (upper right-hand corner). Go to the Music Icon > Music Settings > Energy Filter. The Energy Filter will help you further set the vibe in your venue. However, it will also reduce the number of playable tracks. Also see: What does the energy filter do?
- Review your active artists and playlists. Occasionally what feels like repetition is, in fact, a collection of songs by the same or similar artists which sound very similar.
