Creating a Marquee campaign

Note: We’re gradually rolling out Marquee in beta to US-based teams in Spotify for Artists. Check out Getting access to Marquee for more info.

Marquee is a full-screen, sponsored recommendation for new releases.

Marquee full-screen recommendations have a title "New music for you!", a call to action to go to the release, and a link for users to learn more about Marquee.

How Marquee looks to listeners

Schedule your Marquee up to 18 days after the release date. Campaigns start at 12 AM EST.

For: Admins and Editors on desktop.

  1. Log in to artists.spotify.com.
  2. Go to Campaigns.
  3. Click Create Campaign next to the release.
  4. Add the required info (including budget, target audience, payment method) then click SCHEDULE.

Campaigns created in Spotify for Artists target US audiences. To target listeners in the Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, submit your info to schedule a Marquee through a local representative.
