PLAYLIST POTLUCK /plāˌlist pätˈlək/ noun
A collaborative dinner party where each guest brings a unique dish and music to share.
One of the most vital ingredients to a successful dinner party is the music – whether it be the topic of conversation, an ice-breaker with a stranger, or the soundtrack to your event.
As the holiday season approaches, we started thinking about the idea behind the traditional potluck concept and the fact people around the world use this time to get together with their friends. At a potluck, every guest’s flavor is reflected in the party; we think this translates to musical tastes as well.
Starting this November, we want to help bring people together to listen to music in their homes and extend that feeling of shared contribution and experience to the party’s soundtrack. We’re teaming up with our friends at Sonos to make it happen and introducing Playlist Potluck from Sonos and Spotify.
Playlist Potluck is the same concept as a traditional potluck…plus music. The host kicks things off by creating a Spotify playlist and then invites guests to add their favorite tunes. Everyone gets to add their favorite ingredients (tunes) to the mix.
How do you make your party even better? Host a world-class chef. Sonos is offering the chance to win the ultimate Playlist Potluck experience to eligible Spotify users (new and existing) who create a playlist at https://playlistpotluck.sonos.com. This means having a killer chef like Danny Bowien or Inaki Aizipitarte come over to your house and take care of the cooking. Plus, Sonos will make sure your sound system is on point by setting you up with a set of Sonos speakers.
Jump in and try it yourself to see how much better getting together at home is when everyone brings food AND music to the table!
