The streaming service has donated $500,000 to the National Independent Venue Association to roll out its annual Wrapped campaign.
Spotify is partnering with the National Independent Venue Association to roll out its annual Wrapped campaign on pandemic-shuttered music venue marquees across the country, it was announced Tuesday (Dec. 1).
Every year Spotify's Wrapped campaign unveils the top artists, albums, songs, playlists and podcasts that defined how more than 320 million people around the world listened to audio. For the end of 2020, Spotify is sharing this listener experience with 30 venues selected from NIVA's nearly 3,000 members.
As NIVA’s 3,000 members anxiously await the passage of the Save Our Stages Act in Congress to preserve independent music venues across the country, Spotify is donating a total of $500,000 to those stages and the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund. The NIVA Emergency Relief Fund was created to support America’s most vulnerable venues and is intended to provide short-term relief for independent music venue owners and promoters on the precipice of eviction or permanently shuttering due to the COVID-19 shutdown.
