If they have a Spotify account, you could locate them with their username, by using the following technique -
Type the following code into the Spotify search bar - spotify:user:[username] (replacing [username] with their Spotify username), and you should be able to locate their account. For example, to find your account, type in spotify:user:chellievista and press enter, and your account will appear.

Allowing identification of users by email address would be a breach of privacy, unless each user specifically agreed to it.
Email your friend, and ask them to send you a link to one of their playlists.

"spotify:user: [username]" does not work. Why is this so difficult??? Im annoyed.
Hey! Welcome to the community :)
Do you get an error message? Are you sure you are searching with a dedicated Spotify username?

I was having similar trouble adding one of my friends because he gave me the wrong username. So I just typed out "spotify:user:godfreybk" in an email and told him to copy and paste into his search function. It worked immediately. So as long as you know your own username, I would suggest doing that.

This sounds like a pro feature. I would reccomend a better user friendly approach to adding friends or people you want to follow.
It's like the most basic feature I've always expected to find, but never found...
