Spotify is CLOSED all next week: Why? + What that means for you

Spotify will be closed globally all next week from Monday, November 1st through Friday, November 5th, for a “Wellness Week.”

Spotify is giving all employees this extra week of paid time off to recharge.

But closed offices also mean no or at least very limited services.

You may be too late, but here are a few things to consider:

  • Expect minimal support if something goes wrong
  • Playlist updates will be minimal this week except for a few of the most popular
    Distributors are reccomending that tracks be injested early\
  • Spotify will resume normal updates and other programming on Monday, November 8
