Landing your music on a Apple Music playlist can mean a huge boost in listeners, but how do you do it? Submitting your music to playlists isn’t as complicated as it seems, and with artists always looking to take advantage of ways to get their music heard by a wider audience, playlist submission is at the top of the list. We’ve broken down the process to make submitting your music to Apple Music playlists as easy as possible.
How to Submit Your Music to Apple Music Playlists
Apple’s platform is fairly private, so it doesn’t offer a lot of options for promotional opportunities. Each public playlist viewable on the platform has either been curated by the experts on Apple’s editorial team or partners working with Apple. They don’t allow third-party curators like Spotify does, which makes it nearly impossible to pitch your music to their playlists unless you have a direct connection to their editorial team. Even though Apple Music does not offer direct submissions, there are steps you can take as an artist to improve your chances of landing a spot on one of their playlists.
1. Verify your profile with Apple Connect

Building your followers on Apple Music will help attract curators to your profile, increasing your chances of being included in their playlists. Use social media and other outlets to promote your profile and grow your following.
3. Work with a distributor that has relationships with Apple’s editorial team
Using a distributor like 1710Media could greatly benefit your chances in landing their playlists. When you release a track through 1710Media, you can actually select the option to release it to Apple Music, as well as release music to major platforms like Spotify, TikTok and Deezer.
