Spotify changed the rules for the artist account verification finally. 250 followers as minimum are no longer requested, now you can verify all (which means ALL) your artist profile as you do on Beatport.
Once verified, you’ll get:
• a blue checkmark to your artist page;
• the ability to create & post artist playlists;
• the ability to brand playlists with images & descriptions;
• any followers on your Spotify account will also automatically start following your artist page.
How do I verify my artist page? You can do it here.
