64 Pop, Indie Spotify Playlists Worth Pitching and How To Reach Them

1In the streaming age, playlists are the name of the game when it comes to getting ahead in your career. Here we look at fifty different playlists indie/pop artists should be pitching their music to, as well as how to reach out and actually get ahold of them.

Spotify playlists are shaping the future music business, but reaching the curators of the most influential lists is often incredibly difficult. That is, until now.

Playlists are the primary means of new music discovery for millions of people around the world, and Spotify is leading the charge. The streaming giant has many amazing playlists for every niche in music, and hundreds more are added with each passing day. A great playlist placement can change someone’s career, but all too often the contact information for influential curators is hard to find.

We’re here to help. With the assistance of several friends in the music business, we have uncovered more than sixty (sixty) influential pop and indie playlists that are actively helping artists at every level raise their profiles on a global scale. We’ve also found the people behind them, or at least, a means to contact those behind them, and we’re giving that information to you for free today.

Smart artists will recognize that this is not a perfect solution to pitching problems they currently face. There are thousands of artists working every day for increased exposure through Spotify playlists, and many of them will likely be reaching out to these same contacts in hopes of being noticed. We ran tips to help you stand out while playlist pitching last month, and we will run more in the months to come. Be professional, be engaging, and always be true to yourself. Let the curators know what makes you and your music unique.
