I am having the same problem I am a verified artist. But I cannot make a playlist as an artist. It shows my username instead. This needs to be solved/ammended pretty quickly!

Hey - 

 

I totally hear you guys - it's really frustrating to not have the official band name on playlists. How about you post in the Ideas board and prompt others to give it some kudos?

I also don't understand why it says "Choose playlists you made on Spotify to feature on your profile" when you can't even search for them.

Hey! I was poking around in the platform and noticed if you click that + button then plug in a playlist link it should return the playlist you want. Does that help at all?

It works! However, it still says "created by theurbanpig" instead of the artist name.

I tried setting up an account with our band name but because I had created one before but deleted it right away, I seem not to be able to use the username again. I also can't log into it.

Yeah that seems to be the overarching issue with this new playlisting feature. Looks like someone else got some help via our Twitter friends in this thread: https://twitter.com/danglomusic/status/877964036008103936 

 

Could you maybe try creating another profile with 'bandname'official or official'bandname' or 'bandname'music to get around the username already been used?

 

Also would be good to vote up this idea to let the team know that what we want https://community.spotify.com/t5/Live-Ideas/Artists-Page-Option-to-show-playlist-created-by-artist-i...

Does anyone has a step by step workaround for this issue?!

 

I tried creating user with the same name as artist but it looks ugly as link goes to user account instead of artist :(

 

I checked a lot of artist pages (even relatively new artists) and everybody has a correct link... Please help with it!

I sincerely hope that Spotify is not expecting artists to pay a monthly fee to be their administrators.
