is it possible to block a certain artist from showing up in your feed and in your autoplay? for example, i really really hate the weeknd, is it possible for me to block his songs from autoplaying on playlists (i.e top 40, etc)?

Yes, the feature was just released recently.
 

Spotify do not play artist feature

Yes, finally, it works. Finally I can block, the most annoying, Ed Sheeran.

As it would seem it is only available on the iOS version though.

@melinskiis How did you do that?

 

I don't see that feature on the Spotify desktop app or on the Android app.

I did it on Spotify iOS app version 8.4.89.675. It’s a new feature so I believe it will most likely be rolled out to other platforms shortly.

Make sure your apps are updated.

This is not solved. How hard can it be to program a function to let users block artists and music styles they don't like. Is it about money and artists and rappers who pay to get their music pushed?

Spotify and others are ignoring their users, and I will switch directly to the service who will provide a blocking feature.

Now it is solved. Thanks Spotify!

We still wait for this feature on Android!

Today I was listening to Metallica, Dio, Ozzy, and other excellent bands.  At the end of my playlist it began playing music from other artists on its own.  No problem ususally, but to play Ted Nugent is an affront to all the bands above.  Please make a feature to ignore an artist completely.

Hey Spotify! You should really take care of your customers better than this or you will go the same way as, as, uh, well, don't worry! We will forget your name too! 

(What do we have here? Just another company that stopped innovating and then got driven into the ground by Google)

Yes please add this funcionality. I really, really don't want any Sean Paul, Gavin deGraw or Maroon 5 coming up. It just ruins my moment, whenever, wherever. I'm on a trial subscription, but without functionality like this i will not continue my subscription for there are better services that do.

I totally agree on this case. I pay premium to listen to what I want but the 'promoting' of certain artists is really annoying. I'm not extending my subscription after the summer because Spotify does not care about my favourite music and they tell me what to listen but not vice versa. And this is wrong in modern times when complex algorithms can be created to offer unheard music but after months of listening to jazz, indie, soul, electro I get offered..... Drake. THIS IS A JOKE!

Obviously Spotify don't use any sort of algorithm to match up similar types of music or music liked by people who like the same songs/artists/genres.

 

And I totally agree with the above poster... What is up with this Drake rubbish? It's everywhere on Spotify and I've never listened to it on Spotify and it's nothing like anything I do listen to. 

 

Go home, Spotify. You're drunk.

 

Obviously they make money from playing Drake.

I'm amazed at how poor spotify is at this type of thing, especially given how long it's been  around.

I moved from google music to spotify because the family plan made more sense for my setup.

I've been constantly dissapointed since. Artist radios play the same songs all the time and it is unable to learn from my activity.

Please sort it out or I'll be going back to google music.

So you expect me to pay for this when I can't even listen to Album Radio without some particular artist pissing me off all the time. This seriously sucks and I will not continue with the subscription.

Hopefully this would be implemented soon. And hopefully there's also a way to block entire genres. I just want to block out forever those Korean whatever. Not that they play on my account, thankfully they don't. But it is very irritating seeing some of them being suggested somewhere within the app. Ugh!

I also want this feature. Spotify please implement it

Im glad I'm never spending money on this app. I just uninstalled it for good. You scared away a potential customer. I will never waste my money until this issue is fixed and I can block forced suggestions.

 

Pandora can enjoy my money instead.

Still waiting. I begin to believe that certain artists pay to be advised, i keep disliking but seems to be pointless

I'd love to ban Ted Nugent if possible.
