When you start to feel that warm spring air, you know festival season is on the way. If you’re looking for a safe alternative to your typically festival plans, we’re here to help. This year we are celebrating the start of festival season with our very own festival playlist! Get ready to jam out to a legendary lineup hand-picked by yours truly. Strap on that fanny pack and throw on some shades. We’re going on an adventure!
“Always” by Blink-182
An insanely catchy classic by one of our favorite pop punk groups of all-time, Blink-182’s song “Always” makes for a great kick start to an epic festival experience. The band’s ripping bass, melodic guitar and signature drums are all on display in this badass tune. Imagine the crowd going wild!
“Can’t Stop” by Red Hot Chili Peppers
They’ve been rocking since the 1980s, and it seems as if the Red Hot Chili Peppers only get better with age. This band is used to headlining the biggest festivals in the world, so you know they are going to bring the house down. “Can’t Stop” is THE pump-up song for festival-goers.
“Pursuit of Happiness” by Kid Cudi (feat. MGMT)
The Pursuit of Happiness. It’s the reason we go to these festivals every year! We can’t help but smile when this Kid Cudi track plays, and we think you’ll feel the same way. “People tell me slow my roll. I’m screaming out F*CK THAT!”
“Ivy” by Frank Ocean
“I THOUGHT THAT I WAS DREAMING WHEN YOU SAID YOU LOVED ME.” Yes, we are screaming the lyrics. Why? Because there’s no other way to sing along to this jam. Frank Ocean’s “Ivy” is deep, catchy, and beautiful. When this song comes on, you know we are grooving.
“The Chain” by Fleetwood Mac
Every good lineup has an old-schooler on it, and for our festival we picked one of the greatest bands to ever do it. Led by the insanely gifted Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac is definitely going to bring the heat!
“Congratulations” by Post Malone (feat. Quavo)
“People hating, say we changed, and look we made it.” I hope you saved your voice because we are screaming along to this one. There is no experience like seeing Post Malone live, and when this song plays at a festival you can hear it from miles away.
“Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” by Kendrick Lamar
King Kenny knows a thing or two about putting on a show and although he has a countless amount of amazing songs, we had to go with a classic. The hypnotizing beat and powerhouse lyrics on “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” make it an outstanding festival song.
“Light It Up Remix” by Major Lazer
Get ready to rave until the sun rises! EDM super group Major Lazer is exactly who you want to see included on the ultimate festival lineup. Their hit “Light It Up Remix” will have you bouncing around your house as if you’re actually at the show!
“Together” by Marshmello
After a rough year in quarantine, this song just makes sense. Marshmello’s song “Together” will have you smashing the volume button to full blast!
“Dance, Dance” by Fall Out Boy
Who said emo is dead? Fans will be jumping with joy to see Fall Out Boy in the lineup and rocking a throwback jam. The upbeat tempo and pounding bass make “Dance, Dance” a must-play at our festival!
“Wild for The Night” by A$AP Rocky (Feat. Skrillex)
“Finna wild out for the weekend!” That’s exactly what you will be doing when this playlist is bumping. A$AP and Skrillex go hard as hell on the track “Wild for The Night”, providing an incredible blend of hip-hop and EDM.
“Forever Ever” by Trippie Redd (Feat. Young Thug)
Trippie Redd is more than just a rapper. He’s a superstar performer. We chose this song from his debut album because Young Thug makes it that much better. Two of the best rappers of the modern era truly bring their A-game on this tune.
“Everlong” by Foo Fighters
Because this song is chill-inducing even when you aren’t there in person. The Foo Fighters deliver a beautiful blend of passion and aggression on “Everlong.” They embody what it means to be rock and roll. Let your head-bang to the beat!
“Cigarette Daydream” by Cage The Elephant
It’s soft, it’s sweet, and it’s going to be stuck in your head for the rest of time. Cage The Elephant’s song “Cigarette Daydream” is an outstanding choice to close out festival playlist!
