It's no secret that Spotify playlists have become one of the most important ways for artists to get discovered in today's electronic music landscape. However, with so many electronic artists now having the ability to submit to Spotify playlists via Spotify for Artists, it is becoming increasingly difficult for artists to cut through the noise and get noticed. This is where the role of the independent Spotify playlist curator comes in.
Spotify Playlist Curators
Many music bloggers, magazines, artists, record labels, and music fans around the world are not only able to create and curate their own playlists on Spotify, but many of them are garnering hundreds of thousands of followers and thus creating an undeniable influence on streaming numbers and the subsequent discovery of the artists that they feature.
So as an artist, how do you submit to independent Spotify playlists in order to get them to feature your song? It's not as difficult as you might think. There are plenty of opportunities for talented, unsigned, and independent artists to submit their music to curators’ playlists without spending a dime. Often times it's as simple as sending a friendly email.

If a curator is offering a spot on their playlist in exchange for money, or any sort of compensation, this goes against Spotify’s regulations. Spotify removes user-generated playlists that ask for payment or compensation in order to influence the content included in playlists. Spotify also does not allow users to sell their accounts or playlists. Spotify works hard to remove any playlists that violate any of these guidelines. Working with these curators won’t benefit your career in the long run. Learn More in our Fake Stream, Real Dream article.
