San Luis Obispo trends on X after Spotify labels it as ‘My Sound Town’

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY, Calif. — San Luis Obispo made waves Wednesday on X after users who posted their 2023 Spotify Wrapped were assigned to the central coast city as their "sound town."

Spotify users took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to question and joke about why their music taste led them to San Luis Obispo.

According to Spotify, "Sound Town" is a new feature that matches its users to a city based on their listening and artist affinity.

"The Sound Town selected for each eligible user has the most similar taste profile to their own – based on their most streamed artists of the year and how those artists are streamed in other cities across the globe," said a Spotify Communications Spokesperson via email. "It is objective and entirely driven by a user’s listening history."

The Spotify spokesperson says more than 1,300 cities are in the new feature and nearly 1% of fans will get the city of SLO.

United States Congressman Salud Carbajal, who represents California's 24th district joined in on the trend.

In the image instead of showcasing an artist, Rep. Carbajal's post said, "People there are far more likely to be fans of beautiful coastlines, great food and drink, and year-round sun."

The new feature also labeled Spotify users to other cities, such as Burlington, Vermont and Tempe, Arizona.
