Spotify Now Recommends Concerts Based on Your Listening Habits

A new update promises Spotify users that they will never miss their favourite bands whenever they’re in town.

Today, the music streaming service announced a partnership with tour tracking site Songkick to integrate personalized concert recommendations into the Spotify iOS and Android apps. Found in the Browse tab, the new “Concerts” feature will provide Spotify listeners with a personalized list of upcoming tour dates bases on their location and listening habits.


The Concerts feature will include live shows by artists you love, as well as some new artists that an algorithm thinks you may also like. In a blog post, Spotify explained:

“Much like Discover Weekly, concert recommendations are based on your own listening and picked specifically for you – meaning we surface the live gigs that we know you’ll enjoy, as well as acts that you’ll love to discover.”

Once Spotify listeners discover a concert they’d like to see, they’ll be able to find and purchase tickets through Songkick’s list of ticket sellers, which include Ticketmaster and StubHub.

Spotify for iOS is available as a free download from the App Store. The app requires any device running iOS 7.0 or later.
