More on ’90s music
It’s going to be a while before you see some of your ’90s favorites (or any artist for that matter) hit the festival circuit. With the majority of shows canceling in 2020 and rescheduling until 2021 (and possibly 2022) amid the coronavirus pandemic, live music is a ways away.
But now, thanks to the website to the website Monkeon, music lovers can generate their very own ’90s festival lineups., music fans can generate their very own ’90s festival lineups from the comfort of their own home. The site formulates festival bills featuring ’90s artists and links to real concert footage.
Monkeon is using Spotify data to help curate the two-day lineups. While it may seem random, the site is ordering the bands according to their streaming numbers on the streaming app.
For example, a recently generated two-day festival bill places Beastie Boys, Queens of the Stone Age and Deftones as the event’s headliners. The lineup also includes Iggy Pop, Pulp, The Roots and more as direct support.
Once generated, fans can click on each of the artist names to check out videos of performances from the ’90s. For example, the Beastie Boys link takes viewers to a video of their 1992 Reading Festival set. And Deftones can watch their 1998 Glastonbury performance of “Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away).”
