Reddit is the “front page of the internet”.
A great community where people tell stories, share content, and discuss all manner of things.
Reddit is also home to a strong culture of independent music lovers, but you have to be mindful when going in there to promote your own stuff.
The key is to find the right subreddits (Reddit groups) for you and your music, otherwise you’ll come off as spammy and instantly get downvoted.
Below I have listed some music-centered reddit communities where independent artists like you can share music.
Make sure you read the rules and guidelines for every community that you intend to post to.
r/music is a huge sub, and possibly not the best place to start, but worth a punt all the same.
WATMM is a fabulous place for music makers to connect and learn.
They also offer specific music promotion threads outside of the main feed which I have embedded below.

It’s democratic system of playlist placement based on upvoted content that gets automatically funneled into their own Spotify and Youtube playlists.
