Playlists are now a MUST for every musician who wants to promote his or her music. Getting your music on to a curator’s playlist on Spotify, Apple Music or Deezer can make your fanbase and income grow significantly.
Even if most of the biggest playlists are controlled by the editorial teams of each platform, there are still plenty of opportunities for unsigned and talented artists to be featured on curators’ playlists without spending a dime.
Before starting anything, it’s important to make sure your artist profile is attractive enough, especially on Spotify, where you can now edit a large range of settings. Take the time to learn about your statistics (which is your best performing track? In which country? What are your similar artists?) and listen to curators’ playlists! That way, you increase your chances of being relevant and catching curators' attention when you submit your music.
Here’s a list of 10 Spotify curators’ playlists you can submit your music to, for free. Start pitching:

Curators offering placement on their playlist in exchange for money are considered to be a streaming manipulation service. These services go against Spotify’s regulations. Spotify does not allow anyone to sell an account or playlist or take compensation for featuring specific content on a playlist or account. Spotify continually removes user-generated playlists that violate any of these terms. It’s not worth the hassle.
