Bio guidelines

The main thing we ask is treat others with respect and don’t plagiarize.

The same basic guidelines for your artist image also apply to your bio:

  • Don’t violate anyone’s copyrights. That means no copying unless you have permission.
  • Hate speech and discrimination of any kind is strictly prohibited, and will be removed immediately.
  • Bullying, threats of violence, or harassing individuals or groups isn’t allowed anywhere on Spotify. That type of content will be removed.
