Chances are, you've stumbled across this website in your quest to search for Spotify playlists to submit your music. Well, you've come to the right place!

Submitting music to the Spotify editorial team isn't enough. Landing your new song on a large independently-curated playlist can help give your release a huge boost in exposure. As a singer and songwriter, I've spent countless hours scouring the web for independent Spotify curators. Over the past few years, I've compiled a list of all of the curators and playlists I've pitched my music to. Now I'm sharing my list with you!

Here's a one-stop page for you to submit your music to some of the most popular independent Spotify playlist curators. These websites accept music in all different genres, including pop, rap, hip-hop, EDM, rock, country, indie, and more. All of these submissions are free and only require you to follow a playlist in return for the submission website or link.

If you haven't already, don't forget to submit your music to the Spotify editorial team through Spotify For Artists. It's competitive, but don't give up. My songs have been included in Friday Cratediggers, Creamy, and Ultra Gaming.
