We don’t sell concert tickets. But we do recommend concerts to fans based on where they live, who they follow on Spotify, and what kind of music they like.

We’ve teamed up with 4 ticketing partners—Ticketmaster, Songkick, Eventbrite, and AXS—to make sure fans know when the artists they love play shows nearby.

Using the info we get from our partners, we list concerts on Spotify—in the Concerts section of Browse and on the profiles of the artists playing the show. We also send out over 30 million concert recommendation emails every other week. And that number’s only going up.

Head to Concerts in Spotify for Artists to see all the concerts you have on Spotify—plus the number of followers and listeners you have in each city you’re playing.

We partner with Ticketmaster, Songkick, Eventbrite, and AXS to promote and recommend your concerts to fans on Spotify.

All you have to do is list a concert with one of them. We’ll automatically display it on Spotify for listeners in the cities you’re playing—in the Concerts section of Browse and on your artist profile, right under your most popular tracks. We’ll also include it in our biweekly concert recommendation emails. When fans decide to buy tickets, we take them right to the ticketing partner’s website.

The best way to make sure your fans never miss a show is to ask them to follow you on Spotify. Your followers are like your mailing list. When you’re coming to town, they’re the first ones we tell.

All the concert info we have comes from our ticketing partners. So you’ll need to contact them directly—or have the promoter contact them—to report mistakes. If you have a mismatch or other problem with your artist IDs, reach out to us.

You can also use Songkick Tourbox if you don’t have a concert with any of our partners. They make it easy to list a show—and once it’s in their system it automatically gets added to ours.

We use artist IDs to match the concerts we get from our partners with your artist profile on Spotify.

Ticketmaster, Songkick, AXS, and Eventbrite 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.

Head to Concerts 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.

It doesn’t cost anything to list your concert on Spotify.

If one of our partners is selling tickets to your show, we automatically display the info in the Concerts section of Browse and on your artist profile. Plus, we send concert recommendation emails to all of your followers who have email notifications enabled.

We also recommend your concerts the same way we recommend music in Discover Weekly. If we think somebody will like you, we’ll let them know about your show.

We use location and listening data to recommend your concerts to as many fans as possible in the cities you’re playing. The best way to make sure we recommend your concerts is to ask your fans to follow you on Spotify.

We send concert recommendation emails to your followers—or to people we think will like your music—based on their location.

Anyone who disables notifications from Spotify won’t get an email from us.

Local followers include anyone who is located within 90 miles of your concert and currently follows you on Spotify.

Local listeners are also located within 90 miles of your concert. They don’t follow you on Spotify, but they’ve listened to enough of your music that we think they’ll be interested in your show.

Right now, you can’t use Spotify or Spotify for Artists to reach out directly to followers and listeners in the cities where you have concerts. But we’re hard at work on new features that will make it easier for you to promote your shows by communicating more directly with your fans.

We can’t tell you who’s buying tickets to your concerts. That information belongs to our partners, so you or the promoter will need to visit our partners' websites or reach out to them directly.

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.

It takes up to 24 hours for a new concert to appear on Spotify.

There are a few reasons why your concert might not appear on Spotify. Here’s what you can do:

  • Go to Concerts in Spotify for Artists and check that all of 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 probably because there’s been an error on the ticketing partner’s end. Reach out to them directly—or ask the promoter to—so our partner knows 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).
