The Best Instagram Accounts in the Music Industry To Be Following

Like it or loathe it, it seems like Instagram is here to stay, and it is quickly topping the charts as to where most people spend their time on social media. It can be a great tool for inspiration as it is such a visual platform and can be a great way to connect with like-minded people, as well as seeing what is going on in the world. There are plenty of ‘wannabes’ that are looking to be Insta-famous, but when you find those accounts that you love and keep going back to again, and again, it can be the boost your day needs or the inspiration or motivation to do something new.

Take musical influencers, for example; there are plenty on Instagram to be following. Where do you start, though, if you are looking for something a little less Beyonce and something that is more music-focused? Here are some of the best musical influencer accounts to be following on Instagram; it would be great to hear what you think and if there are any others that you would add to the list.



MDDN is, as their profile states, created for artists, as a place to share information, knowledge, and connect with like-minded people.

It could even inspire you to find some hip hop beats for sale so that you can mix and make some music of your own.

Interscope is the home of artists like Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar, Selena Gomez, and so on. So if you don’t want to follow them all individually, it can be a good idea to follow them on the Interscope Insta page. It shows images and clips from gigs and concerts that you are unlikely to see anywhere else, so can give a real insight into their lives and their music.


Vevo is a great account to be following if you like to watch new music videos and discover some of the latest tunes.
