Spotify now lets artists list virtual tour dates on their pages

The coronavirus pandemic has forced many music festivals and venues to shut down or cancel events. Live performances are a much more lucrative option for artists to earn money, rather than try and get millions of streams on their songs.

To help artists attract more people to their events, Spotify is now introducing a virtual tour feature for musicians to list their online performances.

You will be able to discover these virtual gigs through the “On Tour” section on your favorite artist’s page or Spotify’s own Concert Hub.

The company has partnered with the concert discovery platform Songkick and ticketing platform Ticketmaster to integrate all these events. Artists can list any of their online gigs regardless of the platform being Twitch, Instagram Live, YouTube Live, or a hosted website.

If you’re an artist, you won’t be able to directly list your events on Spotify. You’ll have to work with Songkick or Ticketmaster to get your events listed on the streaming platform.
