Spotify have branched out from just dishing out music to offering fans the chance to get hold of concert tickets early.

Presale tickets are a standard practice when tours are announced these days, and Spotify has joined the party, rewarding loyal listeners with the chance to get their hands on tickets before most other people.

However, there is a bit of nuance to how to get your Spotify presale tickets, it is not as easy as signing up for an account.

Here is everything you need to know…

To get Spotify presale tickets you will need to receive an email from Spotify with an access code.

In order to get that email you will need to be a ‘top fan’ of the artist you want to go and see.

How to become a ‘top fan’ is where it gets a bit vague as Spotify simply say: ‘Emails are sent to listeners who our data show are the artist’s top fans.’

Almost certainly this just means listening to an artist an awful lot.

You don’t need to have a premium account to get the email, they are on offer to everyone with a Spotify account.

What you must do is make sure you have opted in to Artist Update emails and Spotify News and Offers on your notification settings page.

If you are lucky enough to get sent a presale email it will look something like the following, which I was sent for Metallica presale access.

It comes with a code which you will have to enter and links to where to buy the presale tickets.
