Spotify targets gig and festival fans

Jackson's DJ set is set to include the track 'Helly' by Nissan Juke Behind The Hit competition winner Ben Daniels.

Jonathan Foster, General Manager Europe of Spotify, says that "giving our users access to great live music in their own home is the next step in the Spotify experience," promising more live music broadcasts on the way in future.

Nissan GB's online marketing manager Andy Jackson, explains more about the objective of his campaign, claiming that:

"The aim of the 'Behind the Hit' competition was to find an uplifting song that sets the mood when you're driving for a night out. We feel we've done that with Helly and look forward to the first public hearing at Koko and through Spotify."
