Spotify is a music streaming service that it is likely to become highly popular soon. Spotify offers you legal and free access to a huge library of music. All you need to do is create an account and download our streaming music player. Learn how to unblock Spotify from anywhere.
If you are a bit connected to social media (even if you don’t), I’m sure you’ve heard about Spotify – this online music streaming service that is only available for users in Finland, France, Norway, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and the US (at least by the time of this writing).
If you’re not in one of those countries, you won’t be able to listen for free to great music (they also have premium accounts, though). That’s too bad, especially when Spotify claims to have 13 million music available for listening, and we’re not talking about indie artists, they have big guys and gals on their list if we only mention Beyoncé and Coldplay (just had a glance on their home page).

If you are located in those countries …
So, you know that I am located in a place that is not part of those lucky countries. You are in the same situation too, I guess – otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading this article.
But anyway, I’m just thinking that if a VPN can have me pretend that I am in New Jersey, I guess there must be a way that I can tell Spotify that I’m in the US too … So let’s do it.
Unblock Spotify with my US VPN
I launched my VPN client, then I got a US IP address. Now I can create a free Spotify account. So I process, and … oops, I need to get an invitation code. While being a bit skeptical, I applied for being put on the waiting list of people who want to have an invitation to Spotify.
Looking for an invitation
I then browsed the Internet looking for some invitation code that people may have put on forums, but, as you may guess, they are all used-invite that are worthless.
Trying to be a bit smarter, I tweeted if some people would give me a #spotify (please notice the use of the hashtag), I had two unknown people who answered me that they could give me an invite. But the trouble happened when it came to sending the invite as they requested my e-mail address.
I didn’t want to give my e-mail address (well, I could have created a temporary one, but I was a bit lazy doing so), and those guys couldn’t DM me the invite, neither could I DM them as they aren’t following me on twitter – so it was a dead end (well, I could have been a bit insisting, and share a temporary address on twitter, but I didn’t want to be seen as an irresponsible twitter user who shares his e-mail address to the public).
Anyway, less than one week after I applied to the waiting list, ….surprise! I received my official Spotify invite. Great.
Unblock Spotify – Finally there …
I launched again my VPN client, got a US-based IP address, then clicked on the Spotify invite link, created my account, downloaded the Spotify client and… I could listen to the whole album of “3 doors down” that they just released a few days ago… Ain’t
life VPN great? Yeah, I’ve got a Junk of the heart, and I’m happy.
