Pandora launches 60+ holiday stations for 2021

Pandora celebrates the season with more holiday stations than before

Pandora is celebrating the season with more holiday stations than ever before! Pandora’s dozens of festive stations — more than 60 this year — span genres, decades and moods, ensuring all listeners will find something to soundtrack all of their holiday happenings — from Thanksgiving to Hanukkah to Christmas to Kwanzaa.

Pandora has invited Kelly Clarkson, Rob Thomas, Pentatonix and more to share their favorite holiday songs and traditions in exclusive Artist Takeover Modes on Today’s Christmas, Hipster Holidays, Holiday Hits, and Today’s Gospel Hits. Pandora’s Country Christmas station has gathered holiday stories and songs from Tim McGraw, Brett Eldridge, Darius Rucker, Lady A, Mickey Guyton, Josh Turner, and others for a very special Mode called The Pop Up: A Country Holiday. These guest DJ-style Modes will appear throughout November and December and offer a glimpse into how these artists are celebrating this year.

Pandora’s new holiday stations include three that have been curated by its listeners. Holiday Thumb 100 (made up of songs from all eras), Holiday Thumb 100: Traditional (featuring pre-1980 tracks), and Holiday Thumb 100: Modern (comprised of songs 1980-present) are programmed with the 100 songs that have earned the most thumbs ups from Pandora listeners. Pandora curators also pick their ultimate holiday tunes on the new Handpicked 100: Merry Shuffle station.

Heavy metal fans have a brand new station to rock out to this holiday season. Yuletide Slay Ride features the best festive metal and hard rock. With tracks from Alice Cooper, AC/DC, Lemmy, Twisted Sister, Skid Row, Girlschool, GWAR and dozens of others, this station rocks the holidays hard. Kwanzaa Celebration also makes its official debut as a station this year. And, Pandora listeners can travel back in time with 2000s Christmas, 90s Christmas (new this year), 80s Christmas, and 70s Christmas (new this year) stations.

Pandora’s flagship Christmas station has added more Modes this year, allowing listeners to fine-tune the station to hear even more of what they want at the moment. These Modes can be selected while listening to Christmas Radio on the Pandora app: Holiday Top Thumb 100 (also its own station), Acoustic Holiday, Christmas Present, Christmas Past, Grandma’s Favorites, Peaceful Instrumentals, Mistletoe Duets, and Christmas Ensemble.

Additionally, Pandora has a selection of stations to set the mood for whatever you are doing this holiday season: Holiday Cooking, Holiday Cleaning, Holiday Travel, Holiday Workout, and more.
