The Instafest app, which was created by University of Southern California student Anshay Saboo, allows users to choose their top artists from the last four weeks, or the last six months, that will feature on their personalised festival line-up.

There’s also an option for the line-up to feature your most listened-to artists of all time to give an overview of your whole time on Spotify. For more information on the Instafest app head here.

A poster line-up is then created, with a background that can either be in the style of Malibu Sunrise’s summer beach party, LA Twilight’s late night city vibe, or Mojave Dusk’s wild desert. The app also automatically includes your Spotify username as the name of the festival.

Many users have been taking to Twitter to post their festival line-up, with artists ranging from Arctic Monkeys, Muse and Morrissey to Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift.

Meanwhile, Neil Young recently doubled down on his decision to have his music removed from Spotify.

The veteran rock star in January stated his wish to pull his catalogue from the streaming platform after taking issue with it “spreading false information” about COVID vaccines.

Now, Young has explained further his move to cut ties with the platform by removing his music. “Why would I keep it on there when it sounds like a pixelated movie?” he said.
