How to use Spotify Festify 2021: Forest Fest, Volcano Jam, and Unholy Space explained. Around this time every year, the internet takes off with people rushing to make a festival line up out of their fav artists on Spotify over at Festify.

But how do you use Festify? And what do the terms Forest Fest, Volcano Jam, and Unholy Space mean in relation to Spotify?

What is Festify 2021 and how to use it?

Festify takes your most listened to music on Spotify and creates a visual festival line-up that you can share on social media.

It was created in 2017 by Rick Rieta to play around with Spotify’s programming interface.

Then came along Tony Bui, a freelance illustrator who redesigned the app and made it the appealing site we all know and love today.

It’s really simple to use.

Firstly, head over to the website and click ‘login with Spotify.’

Then select if you want your festival line-up to include your most listened to artists from the last month, six months, or all time.

You’re then presented with a festival line-up featuring all your favs from that time period!

Your ‘headliner’ is the musician you listen to most, in the biggest font on your line-up poster.
