Nine out of ten Australian users of Spotify’s free music service believe it’s fair to receive ads in order for artists to earn revenues, according to a recent YouGov study.
The research reveals that 94% of Spotify users questioned across the country agree that in order to combat piracy and help generate money for artists, listening to ads is fair in return for access to millions of songs for free on their mobile and desktop.
The news is revealed as part of Spotify’s latest ‘Are You A Spotify Genius’ infographic, which highlights to advertisers the deep value of Spotify’s free-tier audience. The infographic also reveals:

- A total of 78% of Spotify users are under 34 years old
- Almost one in three new Spotify users are over 35 years of age
- Users of Spotify’s free service have higher incomes, on average, than the general population
In addition, the infographic provides tips on how to produce a great Spotify ad campaign, plus further local facts and figures related to the world’s largest music streaming service.
