The biggest moment to connect with your top fans
Spotify Wrapped. It’s that time when hundreds of millions of listeners around the world come together to reflect on the music that made their year. It’s also a time for fans to connect with the artists that moved them most.
This is your guide to getting the most out of the moment. Starting now, you can record a video message for your top fans, get ready to sell merch and concert tickets, and make sure your artist profile looks its absolute best. Then once you’re done, leave the rest to us and your fans.
Get personal with a Wrapped video message
Upload a video by November 17 to be featured in your top fans’ 2023 Wrapped experience on Spotify.
Speak directly to the fans who made you one of their top artists this year – right as they’re opening Wrapped. In less than 30 seconds, let them know what their support meant to you in 2023. You can share a story about a standout moment, tease what you’re working on next, or simply thank them for a great year.
Record your video
Your video message should be shot vertically; feature no music, singing, or lyrics; no explicit content; no logos or brands; and no added text, graphics, or filters.
Upload your video on Spotify for Artists
Head to Spotify for Artists on mobile or desktop web. Navigate to the Video tab and follow the prompts to upload your video. You’ll be able to view a preview to make sure it looks just right.
Almost there. First, add a caption – it’ll show up at the bottom of your video as a message to your fans. Then choose a thumbnail, and we’ll share it with your top listeners when Wrapped begins.

Offer top fans a discount on your merch
In 2022, Wrapped was the biggest week ever for merch sales on Spotify. This year, we’re amping things up even more. For the first time, artists in the US and Canada will be able to reward top fans with a special merch discount on select items. Make sure to set up your discount rewards by November 15 to make sure they’re included. Here’s how to get it done.
Put your merch center stage
Whether or not you decide to offer a discount, getting your merch store ready for Wrapped is easy. Publish existing, new, or exclusive merch to Spotify via our Shopify integration by November 15, and we’ll select up to five of your items to include, starting with the most recently added. We’ll promote your merch to your top fans via their Wrapped experience, email, and more.
Don’t have merch?

Highlight your upcoming shows
Got tour dates coming up? Let your fans know when and where they can celebrate an incredible year with you. As long as your shows are listed on one of our partner sites, we’ll promote them to your top listeners during Wrapped.
