If you’ve ever wanted to organize your own music festival, what bands and artists would be on the line-up? Once you know how to use Instafest, you’ll know the answer, the hard part is booking them to play in your backyard! This new trend is very Instagram friendly and with Spotify wrapped approaching, it’s a good warning of what to expect your most listened-to artists are. 

The Instafest site will even give you a score of how ‘basic’ your tastes are but don’t take it personally... we all love Taylor Swift. It’s all in good fun and once you learn how to use Instafest you can join in too.

There you go, looks great right? For extra bragging rights compare basic scores with your friends. A higher basic score means you have more mainstream tastes while a lower score means you go your own way. 

Now you've shared it with your friends, why not vote for who has the best fictional festival by learning how to create a poll in WhatsApp. If you're a bit embarrassed by your top artists  —  don't be, but check out how to change passcode on iPhone so nobody can get into your phone and see.
