We receive a lot of emails asking this question on how to submit your music on to a Spotify playlist so we decide to write a post about it. Before submitting your music to a curator make sure you have verified your Spotify artist account. Here is how to get your artist account verified on Spotify. As an independent artist you want to get as many listeners as possible and a good way to get more streams and possibly gain more followers is to get your music on a playlist. So after a little searching we came up with a list of Spotify curators:
Indiemono is the biggest Spotify curator we found, they have a playlist for all genres of music and they love breaking new artists, especially if you have less than 1,000 streams.. You can browse all the playlist to see what playlist fits your genre of music and submit your music. Once you find the playlist that fits your music just click the submit button.
