Question: If you log onto Spotify and search for "Art Basel Miami Beach," do Nas, Theophilus London, TV on the Radio, and Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings pop up?

Answer: No, the system just gets cranky, asks the user to check his or her spelling, and suggests trying "different or simpler searches."

Anyway, we only ask because the free on-demand music service is sponsoring this year's Art Loves Music concert series and the lineup's just been announced, featuring all four of those aforementioned acts.

UPDATE Penguin Prison has been added to Spotiy's Music Loves Art lineup. Check out the Art Basel concert series's complete show schedule.

ANOTHER UPDATE Bad news: You are not invited to Spotify's Art Basel Miami Beach concert series. Good news: You can win tix or watch it on The Internet.

So far, the show schedule hasn't been released. But organizers have confirmed that Brooklyn Queens rap legend Nas, BRKLYN hipster-hopper Theophilus London, longtime indie light-bearers TV on the Radio, and neo-soul diva Sharon Jones and her Dap Kings will be part of the four-day arty party, going down at Midtown's Ricochet Lounge & Bar during Basel weekend.

Nas, Theophilus London, TV on the Radio, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, and Penguin Prison, plus DJs Mark Farina and Venus X as part of Spotify and Ricochet's Music Loves Art, co-sponsored by 42BELOW and Perrier. Thursday, December 1, through Sunday, December 4. Ricochet Bar & Lounge, 3250 NE First Ave, Miami. All shows are invite-only. Call 305-673-3873 or visit ricochetlounge.com.
