Got a tour coming up that you’d like your fans to know about? If you haven’t noticed already, many artists on Spotify have their upcoming tour dates displayed on their profile pages.
Having your dates up on your profile is an extremely convenient feature that could attract more fans and listeners to your events. Any musician with a Spotify for Artists profile is able to display their upcoming shows. Here’s a tutorial on how to do it yourself!
1: Create a Songkick account
In order to display tours, you’re going to need a Songkick account. Once they’re in Songkicks database the dates will appear in Spotify’s desktop and iOS application. Sign up for Songkick HERE.
2: Navigate to Tourbox
Tourbox is Songkicks artist interface and is where you will be able to list all of your events. Click HERE to log in.
