Designed by Anshay Saboo, third-party app Instafest allows users to create a dream festival lineup with their most-played artists on Spotify.
With the 2022 Spotify Wrapped just days away from being unveiled, third-party app Instafest is the newest trend in music. On the website, Spotify users can create their dream festival lineup using their most listened-to artists on Spotify.
On Instafest, users are asked to sign into their Spotify account and allow the app to have access to their listening history. One allowed, the Instafest will be created and shown, displaying the user’s top 36 most-played artists on Spotify for the imaginary three-day festival (made in the likeness of Coachella lineups). Once created, users can select the time period that their top artists are chosen from, whether the past four weeks, six months or all-time.
Users flocked to Twitter to share their Instafest lineups, some which “included” acts like The Weeknd, Drake, Wizkid and more.

The app was designed by Anshay Saboo, a student at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
On his website Anshay describes themselves as a “passionate developer and entrepreneur” who “loves tackling creative challenges and creating products that have a tangible impact and improve lives of others.”
“Since I wrote my first line of code in an after-school class during elementary school, I’ve been fascinated by the power programming grants us to create change,” Anshay wrote. He continues to explain that he has experience with developing and releasing apps on the App and Google Play Store.
