Millennials on Spotify: The party moment

While partying, or even pre-partying, millennials get the group amped up with music to drink and hang out to. If you want to get in on the fun, keep the energy moving and match the beat.

Who's listening in this moment?

According to Spotify’s streaming intelligence, millennials who stream party music are likely social butterflies. We’ve also found couples who are engaged are often tuning into music in party moments.

How to reach millennials in the party moment

Not all millennials party alike, but the connecting factor is always music. Think about enhancing the party moment by learning your audience’s favorite genres and subgenres and matching the beat. Through daypart targeting, you can determine if the vibe is pre-game, barbecue or late-night dance party and match your message appropriately.

Audio is a great format here, but think about a multimedia campaign across different types of connected devices for those partying at home. Think audio for connected speakers and mobile display ads for that obsessive DJ always checking on their next song to further drive your message. Sponsored Playlist has a way of enhancing the party and reinforcing a positive brand association.

Since partying often happens on the weekend, this is also a good time to promote concert events and highlight other weekend activities, to match the mindset of your audience.

Consider targeting partying millennials at other moments in the journey as well. For example, Bacardi worked with us to tell partiers which type of night creature they were based on an analysis of their music interest and behaviors. The final product was their perfect party playlist.
