What is Instafest?

Instafest is a free web app developed by Anshay Saboo, a student from the University of Southern California. The app was first launched during Saboo’s Thanksgiving break in 2022 and quickly gained immense popularity. In just over a week, Saboo reported that his site had attracted over 16 million users, as evident from his Google Analytics data.

Similar to the beloved Spotify Wrapped feature, which allows users to discover their top artists, songs, and genres and share them on social media, Instafest uses data from users’ Spotify accounts to generate a dream music festival lineup that can be shared with friends.

In addition to its integration with Spotify, Instafest has expanded its reach to include other popular music streaming platforms such as Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Last.fm. But for Apple Music and YouTube Music, you can currently create a Festival poster with a playlist.

What’s in your Spotify Instafest?

Your personalized Spotify Instafest will prominently feature 36 of your top artists, with your favorites headlining each day of the fictional three-day festival. When creating your festival lineup, you can select the Spotify streaming time from which your top artists are chosen—whether it’s the last four weeks, six months, or all-time.

The dates of your hypothetical festival will align with the day you create it and extend to the following two days. You can change the festival’s name, or let Instafest name it with a combination of your username and the suffix “fest” or simply “Instafest.” Additionally, you have the option to select the background style of your Spotify Instafest, from “Malibu Sunrise,” “LA Twilight,” “Mojave Dusk,” “Indio Midnight,” “Valley Sunset,” and “Desert Nova.”

Its “Basic Score” feature provides users with a score ranging from 0 to 100. A lower score indicates that the artists featured in your festival are relatively more niche.

Once you are satisfied with how your Instafest Spotify looks, you can download the image and share it on social media platforms, allowing your friends and followers to revel in your virtual music extravaganza.
