This is a little bit cryptic, I know!
I tell you the story.
Two years ago – at Herrang Dance Camp – I signed up with Spotify by using a Swedish address. I just took the address of the Chicago swing dance studio in Stockholm.
Thanks guys! 🙂
At that time, Sweden (where Spotify is located) was one of the few countries with access. Now, the problem was I couldn't get a paid account! When I tried to register my credit card (or PayPal account) it was refused because it was issued in Switzerland. Pretty clever these Spotify guys.
Maybe you're asking now why this was a problem, it's all fine with a free account. The answer is no, it isn't, because you can use Spotify internationally only for 2 weeks per year. So, I had to wait until I attended another workshop in Sweden, France or Spain to get access again.
Today is a good day.
Spotify has finally arrived in Switzerland (and in Belgium, and yesterday in Austria)! No more in disguise!
I hope, my German and Australian friends will have access as well in the near future! (I guess so, there are jobs available in those countries). Until then, you know now how to do it!
Subscribe now to my Spotify playlist “DJ Chrisbe's Song of the Week”. It will be updated regularly from now on. There are some more playlists available and in preperation.
I'm looking forward to connect with you on Spotify. Just drop me a line with your playlist or username!
PS. There is a book (also a Kindle version) available: Spotify for Dummies. Buy it at Amazon.com | Amazon.de
