Stars Gather for 4th Rock Star Jam


Last week the Spotify Community team hosted nine of our top Rock Stars in Sweden for the three-day Rock Star Jam

These Rock Stars were rewarded with the trip for their contributions helping others in both the Spotify Community and on Twitter's @AskRockStars. Together these Rock Stars have posted and tweeted over 66,000 to help Spotify answers their questions, report issues, send feedback and discover new music.  


"It was so cool to get to know so many people this year--Star and Support from every corner of the globe," added Katerina Niavi (@KatesHere) from Greece.

"All the knowledge we’ve exchanged and the things we learned were something unique," said Rock Star Rodrigo Bittencourt (@Bittencourt) from Brazil. 


They were also able to participate in Spotify Karaoke, DJ lessons, a Swedish cooking course, and attended a Rival Sons concert at Gröna Lund.


"Rock Star Jam 2017 was a pleasure from start to finish," Matthew Etherington (@crematedman) from Australia told the Community team. "We welcomed a dream team of Rock Stars from all over the world [and made] important contributions to the future of Spotify and the Community.


Other Rock Star Jam attendees this year included @Hubo (The Netherlands), @osornios (Mexico), @MartinStoichkov (Bulgaria), @Jacob (Switzerland), @Stereochromatic (USA), @Marco (Germany)


Spotify's Rock Star Program was founded in November 2013. The program works to reward Spotify users that help one another via the Community and Twitter. By posting and tweeting Stars earn points which can be redeemed for Rock Star Rewards.

Words cannot express the gratitude I feel towards everyone at Spotify for making me feel very welcome.


From the Spotify staff who welcomed us, to my fellow Rock Stars, I'd like to say thank you for making it a truly remarkable experience.


I feel lucky to count myself a part of this community, filled with so many great people who speak the same language I do: music.


Thank you.
