- We're collaborating with the streaming platform to help fans discover more local parties with their favourite artists.
You can now discover ticketed Resident Advisor events directly through Spotify.
The partnership with the streaming platform connects Spotify users around the world to gigs with artists they like via localised event listings promoted within the Spotify application.
Dedicated to supporting local scenes since inception, Resident Advisor expects this collaboration to help sell more tickets for independent promoters, a critical breeding ground for supporting and showcasing new creators.
"The vitality of local scenes is essential for the sustainability and creativity of the global electronic music community," RA cofounder Nick Sabine says. "Our collaboration with Spotify is a brilliant evolution of the work we have been doing for almost two decades to support the work of the independent artists, venues and promoters which act as the pillars of those scenes."
The collaboration extends to personalised email notifications based on users' favourites and listening history. This will make it easier for users to catch live performances from the artists they love while supporting them and their local scene.
To celebrate the partnership, RA have uploaded all episodes of the Exchange podcast, including in-depth series The Hour, to Spotify.
