Spotify Instafest: How to create your dream music festival card

Spotify never ceases to keep things upbeat, quite literally, for music lovers all over the world. Just as we are gearing up for our annual report card by the music app called Spotify Wrapped, it is time to now get your very own, personal Spotify Instafest — an imaginary three-day music fest with artists customised to your taste.

Spotify has teamed up with a third-party website, which lets you create your own contest card and there is a certain aesthetic appeal with which it is presented.

Spotify Instafest: What is it?

Spotify Instafest is nothing but a fancy alert mentioning your most listened artists. A dream come true for any music lover, it is presented in a form of their 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.

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.
