I love to go to gigs. Too many in-fact! And I wanted a way to make a playlist out of the gigs I’m going to to get ‘warmed up’. I use the great free service provided by Songkick to track the gigs I’m going to.
To make this easier for myself, I created a micro web application built using Ruby/Sinatra which integrates with both Spotify’s and Songkick’s APIs to extract a list of upcoming headliners and support artists from my public Songkick account and then add the artist’s top tracks to a shuffled Spotify playlist.
I’ve also made this open-source too and provided the source code on GitHub: https://github.com/benbristow/songkick-spotify-playlist-generator
