Things to Know About the Spotify Live Event Feature

Before calculating how much you want to spend, there are some things you should know about the feature. The first thing is that it only lists live events. This means, the artist would have to perform in person for an event to be listed. 

Secondly, it only shows the headliner. So if your favourite artist is performing at another event and you’d like to watch that, you might have to do your research beforehand. 

The most important thing to note is that it only outlines the events or concerts in your location. So if you’re in a different city from your set Spotify location, you would have to change your location to see more options. There’s also an option to help you search for events in other cities and we’ll show you how to do this as well.

The app also only shows upcoming events within the next few months. So it might not be the best option for you if you like to plan at least six months ahead. Finally, Spotify gets a commission off every ticket sale. However, it doesn’t inflate the price of the tickets itself.

To change your location and see events in other regions, tap on the location under ‘Live events’ and search for the locations you want. You’ll see a dropdown of upcoming events in that city. Unfortunately, most times, this isn’t a very reliable method so we always recommend focusing on the options provided based on your default location.
