StockX 313 Day Playlist on TIDAL

313 Day—March 13— is Detroit’s day to celebrate—its people, its culture, itself. Detroit’s official/unofficial holiday is celebrated every March 13 because Detroit’s area code is 313.

To celebrate 313 Day, StockX connected with eighteen of Detroit’s most prominent artists curating mini-playlists of the music that represents Detroit and has fueled their art. The “StockX 313 Day Playlist on TIDAL” is a sonic blast from the cultural cutting edges of Detroit and StockX.

We’re excited to be collaborating with TIDAL in the wake of their recently announced  TIDAL UNPLUGGED program for Detroit musicians. The $1 million endowment program is designed to support emerging, Detroit musicians pursue a career as an artist.

In addition to the playlist, we’re also having a party! If you’re in Detroit on March 13, join StockX and several hundred of your closest friends at the Underground at Detroit Institute of Music Education from 6-9 pm for the “StockX Presents: 313 Day In Conversation.” Make sure you RSVP here.

Also, some of the artists dropped by the great space at The Eightfold Collective to talk with StockX about music, their playlists, and who could be the Rolex, or Nike, among other brands, of the Detroit music scene?

So, peruse all the artists’ playlists below and check back here on Wednesday, March 13, when the StockX 313 Day Playlist on TIDAL goes live!
