Frequently 
asked questions

How are LANDR Rising Artists selected?

Each month, one artist will be selected by a committee of LANDR distribution and marketing experts. We consider your dedication to developing your music and career by looking at the work you've put into your socials, your artist bio and your artist brand. We’re looking for passion and substance, not the highest follower count.

Take the time to tell your story in the application form and let us know who you are as an artist.

LANDR is committed to diversity and inclusivity and welcomes applications from artists of all backgrounds and genres.

What will my ads look like?

Spotify currently supports image, audio and video ads. Selected artists may be asked to provide artwork, videos and recordings so our team can create a custom campaign catered to each release.

Audiences and targeting can affect where and how often ads are shown. Our team will track and optimize the ads to ensure maximum reach and impressions.

How do I join the Facebook group?

You’ll be invited to join the Facebook group once you’ve completed your application, but all LANDR Distribution users are invited to join.

Your fellow artists and creators are a great resource when it comes to navigating the world of music promotion. We encourage you to connect, communicate, and collaborate!
