Spotify Instafest: What is it?

Spotify Instafest is simply a fancy alert showcasing your most listened-to artists. A dream come true for any music lover, it is presented in a form of one’s favourite bands headlining a three-day festival.

The music streaming service had come up with a similar feature called Spotify Pie Chart, conceptualised by UCLA student Darren Huang, which allowed the users to get their favourite music categorised into genres which they could share with their peers on social media. With Spotify Instafest, similar digital engagement is expected.

How to create Spotify Instafest?

This is the brainchild of Anshay Saboo, who is a student at the University of Southern California. To generate your very own Spotify Instafest, all you have to do is click on this website. There will be a list of 36 of your most listened artists. The three-day fest will have the three top artists from your list headlining each day. Here is an example below.

There are features to customise this, as you can add your own username with the fest, change the background and decide the aesthetics of your Spotify Instafest. There are three display themes, namely Malibu Sunrise, LA Twilight and Mojave Dusk. After selecting your preference, the image can be downloaded and shared on all your social media accounts.

Another third-party feature that you could play with on Spotify is Receiptify created by Michelle Liu. It allows users to make a receipt-like record of their song history. This one can be accessed by both Apple Music and Spotify users.
