How to Create an Artist Account If Spotify Is Unavailable in My Country

Share this post

Spotify is available in more than 180 countries worldwide. Artists in countries where the service is unavailable use many ways to upload their songs.

The first method many of these musicians try is to use a VPN to change their location. They use this to trick the app so they can register for an artist’s profile. This process is illegal and often fails when Spotify editors realize the submitted details are for a different location.

Another way, which is more legal, is to have a person in a country where the service is available sign up for the profile as a team member. Next, they link your social media channels and upload your songs from that country.

It is advisable to use the second method since the person can just give you their login details so that you can use the profile they set up. Spotify assumes that the account owner is on a trip.

You should only worry about getting your music on Spotify like this if your target audience is not in your home country. Local fans won’t be able to access the streaming service, and you will only be wasting your time.

However, it is good if you plan on reaching listeners in other countries. This is an excellent first step to becoming a worldwide artist.
