New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation (NOTMC) has taken Spotify data offline to create a first-of-its-kind music experience that celebrates the musical significance and diversity of New Orleans.

The live concert was curated using Spotify data, bringing listeners from all over the country who share a passion for the music of New Orleans together for a private, live concert at the iconic Preservation Hall. Footage from the concert, which was documented by the legendary rock-and-roll photographer Danny Clinch among others, is being developed into a trailer, Spotify album, and a full-length film to debut in early 2020.

The playlist featured classic New Orleans artists, including Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Jon Batiste and Curren$y, among many other incredible performers. Using data from the Spotify playlist, NOTMC selected an exclusive group of listeners with nothing in common but their love for New Orleans music to experience the “Offline Playlist” live, with the artists performing for them exclusively at the iconic venue Preservation Hall. Collectively, the performing artists have more than 100 million Spotify streams and six Grammy nominations, and they all came together for the first-time for this experience. This is the first Spotify playlist to be recreated live, and also developed into a full-length documentary.
