Instafest App Lets You Create Your Festival Lineup from Spotify
In case your favorite music festival’s lineup didn’t live up to your expectations this year, you don’t need to worry. A newly introduced app called Instafest will make a music festival poster for you based on your Spotify listening habits.
Created by developer Anshay Saboo, this free web app, is very simple to use. You just have to sign in with your Spotify account, and it will create a poster based on the artists to whom you most listened. You can modify the poster based on time intervals — last four weeks, last six months, and all time. There is also an option where you can also select different styles of posters such as Malibu Sunrise, LA Twilight, and Mojave Dusk. Instafest app also estimates what it calls “Basic Score,”. This might give you a chance to flex your music taste. The lower the score, the more niche your music festival is.
You can choose to rename your music festival, hide/show your username, and hide/show your Basic Score once you create the poster. You can follow this guide to revoke access in case you want to delete the support for this app.
Saboo told that he was influenced while thinking about what Coachella’s lineup would look like if he picked the artists to make this app.
“I had the idea when I was in bed scrolling through TikTok one day, I saw people were posting videos from Coachella and I started thinking about how I would set the Coachella lineup if I could pick the artists. The thought process led to me thinking about generating a music festival graphic using a Spotify integration, and I built off from there,” he said
Currently, Saboo is concentrating on sustaining the app and adding more integration that makes sharing users’ festival lineups even more exciting. He said as it’s too early to remark on long-term plans, he is looking for the possibilities of making a music-based social network around festival graphics generation.
