I (and many others) have fond memories of procrastinating on Turntable.fm (cc @billychasen @seth). Festify brings some of that nostalgic, collaborative DJ'ing to the real world, powered by Spotify. I wonder if Spotify is planning to build something like this. Credit to @kingthor for this find (LifeHacker article)

@kingthor @rrhoover Yes, a number of other apps have done this previously on the Spotify / Rdio platforms including TuneTug & Soundrop. The Soundrop guys are also backed by one of the early Spotify VCs. Mostly these have focused on the home market. @GetRockbot we are focused on U.S. businesses. It's great to see some many people working on it. Btw, we're hiring for anyone else that wants to tackle this.

Oh looks awesome! We use Rockbot to do this at clubs so this would be perfect for home parties.

@seanalyn Does Rockbot require voters to install their app? Or can they chime in through a browser+code like Festify?

@seanalyn Rockbot at Lucky Strike!

@seanalyn @bryanwynkoop Yes, we have a web app though it functions a bit differently that the Festify code system.

Interesting that they're launching with Windows and iOS without Android. Any particular reason?
Paul Arterburn@parterburn · Director of Engineering at Unreasonable
@tymathews they launched OSX and Windows as the server apps - the client is just an HTML5 webpage so it works on any mobile phone. Great launch decision, actually.

This is so cool! We wanted to do this for our wedding so bad. Currently what we always do is have our guests add their own songs to a playlist on Spotify and call it "Song Off." This voting component makes it so much easier to let everyone be apart of the fun. I'm sold! :)

Had an idea like this for a long time, thought it would work great for clubs/bars if it had a social loop built in, so people tweeted to pick the next song or playlist. Seemed like it could be a great way to get more people in a club that night.
