Spotify Spotlight Sessions

Celebrating Spotify’s ‘Spotlight’ Artists of 2016 by creating an intimate music gig in the heart of London,

Project Description

Wasserman Experience delivered with Spotify their first ever Spotlight Sessions music gig, in order to celebrate the up and coming talent of 2016 who Spotify have been working with and supporting over recent months.

We were tasked to create and stage an intimate gig for 250 music industry people in a relevant London venue in order to showcase these artists.

The main role for Wasserman Experience was to identify a cool venue in London that would both fit in with the brand and the purpose of the Spotlight Session gig. Wasserman identified The Vinyl Factory for this activation.

The Vinyl Factory, Soho is situated below the famous Phonica Records store. The Vinyl Factory offers a large, neutral space with a industrial feel with unique features that gives character so rarely found in a venue so central

The night featured performances from Samm Henshaw, Jones and Jack Garrett, who picked up the BBC Music Introducing Artist of the Year Award for 2015. Previous winners have included Sam Smith, James Bay and Adele.

This event was part of a series of Spotify Spotlight Sessions in locations including Stockholm, New York and Nashville. The model for each of these events was mirrored from the London gig which we produced
