#REDIRECT [[Style/Artist_Credits#Featured_artists]]
This guideline applies to cases in which one or more artists are ''featured'' on a track or release by another artist, but not equally as they would be in a collaboration. That is, they are not really considered the "main" artist for the track or release, but they're given credit on the cover or track listing in a manner which elevates their contribution above normal liner note credits. Often, they're listed as “featuring” or “feat.”.
== Guideline ==
Featured artists should be added to the artist credit, in the format "Primary Artist feat. X, Y & Z". That's to say, they should follow the primary artist(s), and be separated from them with the join phrase " feat. ". Each featured artist should be separated by a comma, with & before the last. For information on how to do this, see [[How to Use Artist Credits]].
If the release uses a word different from "featuring" (or an abbreviation of it), e.g. "with", "con" or "avec", use that word as the join phrase instead of " feat. ".
== Rationale ==
Using artist credits (instead of listing the featured artist as [[Style/Titles#Extra_title_information|extra title information]]) allows us to show the releases and recordings under all credited artists, not just the primary ones.

#*Since "med" is not a variation of "feat.", we just use what the release says.
