 How to Get Playlisted On Spotify 2023

If you’ve got music on Spotify, you NEED to be using Spotify for Artists.

If you haven’t already, go sign up and link your Spotify artist profile to Spotify for Artists right now!

You need to have music to release online and once you have done this, you are in the position to work with a music distributor. It sounds obvious to release your music first, but you need to have some exposure first before you start pitching your music for playlists.

After link your Spotify artist profile to Spotify for Artists. You will then be able to pitch your music directly onto playlists on Spotify. 


You can do this by either going to the 'Home' tab at the top of your Spotify for Artists dashboard and choosing 'Pitch a song to our editors’ or secondly find the ‘Music' tab at the top of your Spotify for Artists dashboard and choose 'Upcoming' and then 'Pitch a song’. 

You will then be able to choose which track you would like to submit, and Spotify will then ask you to fill out some info about the release you're pitching. Make sure to fill this in fully & accurately, to better your chances at getting it placed!

They'll ask for details about where you're from, artist info such as; the genres of the song, the title and when it will be released etc. Be as specific as possible to help curators understand the creative influences behind your release... 

Once you have submitted your music, Spotify sends a confirmation email to the address associated with your account to say that your placement has been accepted. 

Spotify's curators have to go through thousands and thousands of playlist submissions every day, so the earlier you pitch, the better your chance of getting heard.

Also, you can only submit one track per release. This is to limit the amount of artists pitching their music at any one given time, so Spotify's editorial team can give every artist a chance. So if you're releasing an album or EP, have a good think about which track is most likely to get picked up by playlists.

Note: Keep your artist profile up to date, with all your artist info, such as; a bio, tour dates and links to your socials & website. The more present this artist profile is, the more playlist curators will take you seriously and it is a very easy process to keep up to date when you have all the basics filled out. You also need to be verified as an artist on Spotify...
