Spotify will host a series of virtual concerts in May and June 2021. The likes of Jack Antonoff, The Black Keys and Leon Bridges will perform in pre-recorded live streams.

Here's the full list of who performs at Spotify's virtual concerts, and how to get a ticket for one.

What are Spotify virtual concerts

Spotify hosts its own virtual concerts as a way for fans to support their favorite artists. While part of the world is reopening, big in-person live events are still a long way off. For now, Spotify sees these concerts in May and June 2021 as a way to bridge the gap. However, if they sell well, you will likely see Spotify perform more in the future.



Although the concerts are live streamed, they are pre-recorded. This means that you can purchase a ticket from a selection of times that suit you best.

You will not be able to pause, rewind, download or record the show. There will also be no reproduction on demand. You have to watch it as it is being broadcast.

Who will do a virtual concert on Spotify

Between May and June 2021, the following artists will perform live streaming concerts on Spotify:

  • 27 May: The Black Keys, performing at the Blue Front Café in Mississippi
  • 3 June: Rag'n'Bone Man, exhibition at the Roundhouse in London
  • 10nd June : Bleachers (Jack Antonoff), performing from Brooklyn to Asbury Park on a city bus
  • 17 June: Leon Bridges, performing at the Gold-Diggers Hotel in Los Angeles
  • 24 guigno: Girl in red

If you are a fan of these artists on Spotify, you should get a reminder about a week before the live stream date.



Each concert will last between 40 and 75 minutes.
