This is the first time I have ever heard of the Spotify Pre-Sale. I just found out my favourite artist, Banks, is coming to DC June 7th, and when I went to see how much tickets were, I saw the GA Spotify Pre-Sale starts TOMORROW at 10am. I am a premium member, and I am wondering how can I get this code!?
I have been a Spotify subsricber for years. Listen and download many Heavy Metal artisits to BPM and Rap etc,. I have never received a code for a pre-sale and very dissappoint that I am paying for this service and not being sent codes. Particular, going on a road trip to the US and wanted to see Slayer in Seattle.
Not a fair deal not having Spotify sending me codess.
Considering there are days that I listen to Michael Franti exclusively for hours on end on my Spotify Premium account, yet I did not receive a code for the Spotify Presale on tickets, I think the way these are determined needs to be reevaluated.
I've had spotify premium for several years and have used it to access a lot of different music but have maintained the same core lineup of artists and bands as fleeting musical tastes have waned and my loyalty to certain genres and styles has persisted. There are probably 10 different bands that I have listened to religiously through spotify and I have never received a presale invite. I was hoping that this was due to the fact that the bands I liked never had this arrangement with spotify, but now fleet foxes have a presale that starts this morning and I did not receive the code despite them being on heavy rotation. I strongly recommend you consider whether this service alienates more customers or demonstrates value because if the number of presale codes you can distribute is limited then you are in bad need of a more equitable way to award them. Perhaps allow all fans to request presale codes and then award them out like a raffle so it seems less like you are individually picking the lucky few... people will feel less slighted as I do right now. Strongly considering what other options are available to me in the streaming music world because clearly my premium payment doesnt equate to premium access.
