Artists with over 250 followers can verify their artist page by submitting a verification request. Verification merges your artist page with a Spotify account so you can share playlists directly with your fans. You also get a blue checkmark.
Here's what to do:
1. Set up a Spotify account
You’ll need a Spotify user account to get started. If you don’t already have an account, you can create a free one by signing up with an email address here.
2. Ensure that you have 250 followers, then complete the Verification form
Once you’ve setup the account, please complete this form.
To help us verify the account, be ready with the following information:
- Your artist name and the link to your artist page (If there is a problem with your discography or your albums appear on more than one page, click here.)
- A link to the account you would like merged with your artist discography page. You can find this link by going to your personal user profile (the one you use to listen to music), clicking on the ellipses underneath your name and clicking “copy Spotify URI.”
- The email address associated with your user profile.
- The preferred display name for the profile.
- A link to a Twitter account associated with the artist. Please note that Twitter credentials are not stored in any way.
3. Wait for Verification
Verification can take up to 4 weeks, but if you encounter any issues with the process, feel free to reach out to us here.
Verification allows you to claim your artist page by merging it with your Spotify account. Once verified, you'll get
- a blue checkmark to your artist page
- the ability to create & post artist playlists
- the ability to brand playlists with images & descriptions
Any followers on your Spotify account will also automatically start following your artist page.
To get started, submit a verification request here.
