Spotify Sound Town in the 2023 Spotify Wrapped experience

Spotify Wrapped Sound Town: All You Need To Know

As you may have seen across the internet, we matched listeners to a Sound Town based on their own listening and artist affinity as part of our 2023 Spotify Wrapped personalized experience. If you haven’t launched your own listening journey yet, go check out your 2023 Wrapped here and see if your tastes line up with those of fans in, say, Provo, Utah, or Cuiabá, Brazil, or, well, more than 1,300 spots around the world.

How did Spotify pick your Sound Town, anyway?

Listening is universal, a pastime loved by communities around the world. Streaming habits transcend borders, leading to songs, genres, and artists that achieve new lives in faraway places. 

Sound Towns selected for eligible users are made up of two factors: a user’s most-streamed artists of the year, and the way in which those artists are streamed in other cities. It’s objective and driven by a user’s listening history.

Many cities around the world are highlighted in the experience, but we’ve seen fans around the world make a select few the talk of the town since 2023 Wrapped debuted. If you’ve been wondering what locals listened to in these hot spots, we rounded up the most-streamed songs of the year for each city. 

Although these lists don’t speak to the methodology we used to determine users’ Sound Towns—and don’t necessarily reflect all of the artists that fans had in common as part of their experience—it does paint a picture of each city’s unique tastes.
