This dataset is based on the subset of users in the #nowplaying dataset who publish their #nowplaying tweets via Spotify. In principle, the dataset holds users, their playlists and the tracks contained in these playlists.

The csv-file holding the dataset contains the following columns: "user_id", "artistname", "trackname", "playlistname", where

  • user_id is a hash of the user's Spotify user name
  • artistname is the name of the artist
  • trackname is the title of the track and
  • playlistname is the name of the playlist that contains this track.

The separator used is , each entry is enclosed by double quotes and the escape character used is \.

A description of the generation of the dataset and the dataset itself can be found in the following paper:
