We don’t sell concert tickets, but we do recommend concerts to fans based on where they live, who they follow, and what they listen to.
Concerts are listed in Spotify in the Concerts section of Browse and on artist profiles. This information comes from our ticketing partners – Ticketmaster, Songkick, Eventbrite, AXS, Resident Advisor, and eplus (in Japan only) - to make sure fans know when the artists they love are playing nearby.
Head to Spotify for Artists to check all the concerts you have on Spotify, plus the number of followers and listeners you have in each city you’re playing.
You just need a concert listed on one of our ticketing partner sites:
- Resident Advisor
- eplus (Japan only).
It then automatically displays in Spotify, in the Concerts section of Browse and on artist profiles.
You can also ask fans to follow you on Spotify, so they’re the first to know when you’re in their town.
Go to Spotify for Artists to check all the concerts you have on Spotify, plus the number of followers and listeners you have in each city you’re playing.

- Check out all of the upcoming concert dates we’re currently displaying for you on Spotify.
- See how many followers and listeners you have in each of the cities you’re playing.

We use artist IDs to match the concerts we get from our partners with your artist profile on Spotify. Our partners create these IDs to keep track of the artists who sell tickets on their sites.
When they send us your concerts, they also send us your ID. We match your artist profile on Spotify with your artist ID, so fans on Spotify know where and when you’re playing.
Go to CONCERTS in your Profile in Spotify for Artists to see your artist IDs and confirm they’re correct. If you have a mismatch or other problem, let us know.
In order to appear on Spotify, a concert listing we pull from one of our partners needs to include:
- At least 1 artist name
- A start time
- A venue name
- An event name
If your concert is missing any of this info, it won’t appear on Spotify.
To update the info in your concert listings, you’ll need to reach out directly to the ticketing partner or have the concert promoter contact them.
Using a combination of location and listening data, Spotify displays your concert info to as many of your fans as possible in and near the cities you’re playing.
We also send concert recommendation emails to your followers and others who listen to your music on Spotify.
Tip: Ask fans in all your social media channels to follow you on Spotify! Increasing your followers is the best way to get featured in concert recommendation emails. You can also embed a follow button on your website.
The best way to add a new concert to Spotify is to use Songkick Tourbox. They make it easy to list a show—and once it’s in their system it automatically gets added to ours.
If your concert isn’t displayed within 24 hours after listing it with the partner, try these steps:
- Head to CONCERTS in your Profile in Spotify for Artists and check all your artists IDs are correct. If you see a mismatch, let us know.
- If your artist IDs are correct, click the gear symbol at the top of your list of concerts in Spotify for Artists, then copy and paste your concert URL to check if it’s in our system.
- If your concert isn’t in our system, it’s likely there’s an error on the ticketing partner’s end. You need to reach out to them directly to let them know your concert isn’t appearing on Spotify.
You can! For the festival to appear on your Spotify artist profile, just make sure you're linked to the festival on the ticketing partner site.
A couple of things to bear in mind:
- Festivals are defined as events with 6 or more artists on the bill. If there are fewer than 6 artists, their names, instead of the festival name, will appear as the event title.
- Only the opening day will be listed for a multi-day festival (e.g. A festival that runs Friday to Sunday will only appear as a Friday event).
