Service Slowdown

Hi everyone,

We’re currently working through a backlog that has caused service to slow. We’re in the process of recovering, but you may still continue to see some delays and failed page loads as we work on the issue.

We’ll have everything back to normal as quickly as we can, and we really appreciate your patience and understanding.

19:34PM CET/ 11:34AM PT

The backlog has been cleared, and service should now be fully restored. Thanks for sticking with us, and happy listening!

Hey everybody,

We’re investigating reports of trouble sharing SoundCloud tracks to Facebook and playing tracks that have been shared previously.

Our engineers are looking into the issue further, and we’ll have things back to normal as soon as we can.

Thanks for your understanding! We’ll provide updates here as more information becomes available.

02:04AM CET/ 18:04PM PT

Everything’s been sorted out with Facebook, and tracks should now display and play correctly. Thanks for your patience, and happy listening!

17:09 CET/ 9:09AM PST 

Hey everyone, we are currently fixing a couple things behind the curtain and had to put the site into “read-only” mode. This means you will be able to listen to tracks and navigate the site, but won’t be able to like, comment or upload new tracks. We only expect this to last for a few minutes and will keep you posted!

17:23 CET/ 9:23AM PST

And we’re back! Refresh your browsers and apps and you’ll be able to upload, comment and like tracks again!  Thanks for hanging in there and we apologize for any inconvenience.


17:50PM CET/ 9:50AM PST 

Hey everyone, we are currently experiencing some outages on the SoundCloud site. Our developers are working hard to fix this as soon as possible and roll out a deploy. We will be updating here as soon as we have more information about this. 

18:20PM CET/ 10:20AM PST 

We are currently working through an activities backlog, which is still causing some outages on site. An update will be made available as soon as we have an ETA of when this has cleared entirely. 

18:26PM CET/ 10:36AM PST 

We are now out of the backlog and stable on the site. Thanks for your patience here!
