API, how to search all artists

Hi All,

As a noob, I hope to get a push in the right direction. I want to make an api request in a React application to search for all artists.

What endpoint and query should I then use?


It’s not possible to search for all artists at once using the REST API (more specifically the REST search API) because there is a rate-limit of 1 query per second, each query can return at most 100 artists, and there currently are 2,167,446 artists in the database (according to statistics).

You have to make more precise queries. See the search fields, example query, and example results provided to search for artist in documentation.
