Musicians You Should Follow on Instagram


Following their billion-dollar takeover by Facebook, it seems like Instagram is all over the place. It’s one of the fastest growing social networks ever, attracting a borderline-obsessive following among its 50 million users. A lot of artists have hopped on the shared-experience train; it’s something to do on tour, a way to share glimpses of luxury or chronicle their unfiltered antics. Last year, we talked with Instagram founder Kevin Systrom about why people are so eager to self-document and share. Now, we’ve looked around Instagram and found the music world’s best feeds to follow. (P.S., we’ve got one too.)

  1. Vic says:

    i already had to unfollow a few of these niggas because they post too many pictures of themselves. no guy wants to see pictures of another guy on his phone.

  2. Why would I want to follow any of these people? Lol it’s more fun seeing regular folks post cool pictures.

  3. Jake Money says:

    I don’t know how you could leave Evidence from Dilated Peoples out of this list. He’s likely one of the best photographers/artists using Instagram.

  4. Jordan Sousa says:

    Thats Hodgys old Instagram and hasn’t been updated in months. His new one is @Lordgnaw.

  5. Blahblahblahblahblah says:

    FOLLOW @Blaquechris @Fuckyoumike @coldcave23 @randysrandall @jormahchrist @213mattman @jacobsafari @frankichan
    You won’t be disapointed

  6. s_ says:
