Most popular music genres in Germany in 2019

Most popular music genres in Germany 2019 Rock and pop are the most listened to music genres in Germany. Followed by oldies and the quintessentially German “Schlager”, these make up the top three of the most popular types of music. The ranking is also echoed among those who purchase music CDs, though a rising share of consumers don’t buy CDs at all.

Festival country

Based on various album charts, mainly German- and English-speaking music artists are popular among German listeners. Germany is also known for a variety of international rock festivals, catering to the many subgenres, as well as being one of the leading three countries in Europe hosting major music festivals in general.

In tune with the times

While German consumers will still buy music CDs, an increasing share of them is using streaming services to access music. Over a five-year period, the figure grew from 9 to 50 percent, indicating the changing trends in how listeners consume music and the ongoing rise of digitalization in this area. Spotify was the most used fee-based online streaming service in Germany.
