Music lovers who are missing out on live music events can create their own personalized music festival lineups on social media.
The recent trend, dubbed as Instafest, features custom posters or graphics that include playlists created on Spotify.
Instagram users can create their own virtual music sets by following a few steps, including selecting favorite artists, uploading an image or graphic, and sharing the music.
The process of creating Instafest lineups varies from user to user.
Some prefer to create their own graphics, while some use ready-made templates from websites like Canva.
Spotify also offers its own pre-designed templates for users to create custom graphics for their playlists.
While some users enjoy creating and sharing Instafest lineups, some music enthusiasts find it disappointing.
"Hasn't anyone heard of mix tapes or just sharing a bunch of songs you like?" commented one Reddit user.
However, some people believe that the popularity of Instafest reflects the need to connect with other users during the pandemic.
"At a time when social media is one of the main remaining options for social connection, perhaps it is unsurprising that tweens are resorting to online versions of normal adolescent pastimes, such as music festivals," said Sophie Wilkowske, a journalist at The Guardian.
Regardless of opinions, Instafest has become a viral trend, with many users creating their own unique and personalized music festival lineups.
