In fact, you can submit your music for the chance to be included on the Ditto Music Spotify playlists right now.

You’ll also need to link your verified artist page with an active Spotify account. You can either use your personal account, or create a new one specifically for this purpose.

You’ll find this link by clicking on the three dots under your name and hitting ‘copy Spotify URL’.


3. Sit back and wait to get verified on Spotify
