Panel Discussion

How Streaming Playlists Really Work... & Do They Even Matter?

Over the last few years, breaking into that playlist ecosystem and getting songs on the most popular ones has become something of a fixation for the music industry, and it’s somewhat justified. Playlist placements can help break an artist and greatly boost their numbers, but like most fixations, its importance can be overblown. In this conversation, we'll breakdown how different types of playlists are curated, in the key differences between the streaming services, the importance of analytics, how labels and playlist pitching companies influence playlists, and what impact, if any, playlists have on artists' careers.
