TAMPA (July 5, 2018) In partnership with Symphonic Distribution, the Tampa Downtown Partnership announces the release of six public playlists on music streaming service Spotify. Spotify users can now access playlists for signature Downtown experiences for living, working, playing, and learning in Tampa’s downtown.
“We are really excited to be partnering up with the Tampa Downtown Partnership and providing the soundtrack for Downtown Tampa,” said Janette Berrios, Director of Marketing for Symphonic Distribution. “After moving our operations to the downtown area, we quickly realized that there is a great opportunity to connect this vibrant and dynamic area with the music that is being created in it,” said Berrios.
The music featured in the playlists will include music from the best up-and-coming Tampa musicians, indie music from around the globe and some local favorites, including musicians who play during the monthly Downtown music series, Rock the Park which is celebrating its 8th anniversary on July 5.
“The Tampa Downtown Partnership is honored to celebrate the 8 year anniversary of Rock the Park. This celebration means we’ve completed nearly 100 free concerts for the public to enjoy at Curtis Hixon Park. The community gathering not only celebrates the local and regional music scene, but local food and businesses as well,” said Shaun Drinkard, Senior Director of Public Programming and Operations for the Tampa Downtown Partnership. “One great example is our recent partnership with Symphonic Distribution which is headquartered in Downtown Tampa, FL and has offices in major music markets throughout the world,” said Drinkard.
Rock the Park is among the six playlists curated by Symphonic. Others include Yoga in the Park, Tampa Riverwalk Run, Zumba in the Park, Study Sessions, and Pre-Game Party — a tribute to Tampa Bay Lightning fans.
“We hope that listeners discover and experience the diversity, culture and incredible talent that our Tampa Bay area has to offer,” said Berrios.
