When you have your music on Spotify, how do you get in contact with relevant playlist owners to present your music if it seems to fit their playlist?
Link to our album if you are interested:
Thanks for your help
Solved! Go to Solution.
With Spotify for Artists, you can submit one song from any scheduled release for our team to discover and consider for editorial playlists. We’ll also include it on your followers’ Release Radar playlists.
Tip: If this is your first release and you don’t yet have access to Spotify for Artists, check out “How do I claim my artist profile before my first release?”.
Some things to keep in mind:
The earlier you submit your music, the better. We recommend at least 7 days before its release date. (This is also required to have your submission included on Release Radar). You can work with your distributor to make sure it’s delivered to us ahead of this time.

Thanks a bunch!
This doesn't work.
I've followed these instructions exactly several times, and the only people it lets me send a message/share to is my facebook friends. For anyone else that I follow their playlist, but I'm not their friend on facebook, Spotify does not allow me to message them. Is this even possible anymore?? This is practically the only way for indie artists to try and market themselves within the Spotify community, yet the function is unavailable. If there is another or new way to do this PLEASE let us know!
Also, is there any way to submit songs to be considered for playlists created by Spotify? It seems impossible unless you have some major record label that in direct contact with Spotify employees....
Same problem here...
Here is how I, personally, proceed.
As long time independant new music digger and playlists curator, I have my own website and people who wants contact me, most of time, use this way.
To be honest, I receive daily many requests to listen new music. As I have made this choice, the only streaming service I use is Spotiy. So, I pay more attention to people already having music available on Spotify. However, as I want keep my independance, it's not because I am requested that a song will be added in one of my playlists. It has to fit my taste. I always keep the last word and I am not "to buy" 🙂 but as I dig, daily and deeply the new releases on Spotify, if you have a good recording, I will find it.
I know other independant playlisters who can be reached also through a website. Usually it's mentioned in the description of their playlists.
There is also some playlisters who post in the community. Then can be PMed in the community.
In the case of "official" playlists makers as Spotify, Topsify, Digster, Filtr etc... they have their own curators and their own way to curate their playlists.
had the same problem.. i think the solution posted above is probably for older versions of the desktop spotify app
While reading your message; concerning getting in contact with playlist owners, I directly take the oppertunity sharing my latest creation;

perhaps it's something which would fitt in your lists 🙂
Hello there and welcome to the community,
"Fresh Finds" are usually based on what main independent curators (magazine online, website, individual curators, blogs, etc...) are featuring in their playlists.
So, more your songs are playlisted by different sources, more you have a chance to be added to official Spotify "Fresh Finds" playlists.
Good luck 🙂
I am trying to find a way to send my music to a playlist curator. I am not quite sure if the sending option works on my desktop

Hi everyone! Does anyone know how to send a message to a playlist curator/owner? Seems like the message button is gone on spotify..
Thanks for the help! 🙂
I've tried this and it doesn't work. When you click share you are only presented with the opportunity to share on facebook, twitter etc. There is no option to share with people you follow on spotify.
This was very helpful to me!
Take a look at my new single, and if anyone knows of playlists looking to add new stuff... let me know 😉
Hello, good day.
Please can you kindly consider adding any of my tracks to your playlists?
My genre is Afrobeat / Afropop though...
Here's a link to one https://open.spotify.com/album/42Xon1B5gs4ELOemFqgDCw .
