Spotify wants to make it easier for you to follow live events performed by your favorite artists. And to that end, it is adding new online event streaming platforms.
So a new dynamic and more platforms are added to Spotify to follow from one place the scheduled online events of the artists.
Here’s how you can follow your favorite artists’ virtual events on Spotify
If you take a look at the profiles of the artists you follow on Spotify, you will see that there is a section called “See all concerts” that lists all scheduled tours, recitals, or live events. Or you can go to the Search tab and select “Concerts” to see all virtual or physical events near your location.
Spotify shows you the dates, venues, and how to get tickets or register to attend these events through Ticketmaster or Songkick. Now this dynamic is being extended thanks to a new Spotify partnership with new virtual events streaming platforms such as NoCap, nugs.net, StageIt, and Mandolin.
While Spotify does not coordinate these events, as this is a process between the artists and the corresponding platforms, it makes it easier for users to discover this information and directs them to the source platform for more information.
An interesting dynamic that will prevent users from having to search different media for virtual events performed by their favorite artists on different sources. And this virtual event discovery system in the Spotify app is complemented by notifications and emails with recommendations based on user preferences.
In the US, Canada, and the UK these automatic notifications will be shown to users 24 to 48 hours before the virtual event takes place as reminders for users. But don’t worry, you won’t miss any details either if you search for events on Spotify from the two options mentioned above.
