Rock Werchter, Coachella, Pitchfork, When We Were Young, Governors Ball, Panorama, Bonnaroo… music festival season is right around the corner and 50 Campfires has your back with a fresh camping playlist.
Check it out below and get started on 40 top tracks that demand to be played loud and proud. Tracks to pump you up, songs to slow you down, but most of all to get your neighbors at the festival to stop in their tracks and ask, “Who is this???”
A Tribe Called Quests “We The People…” brings the funk off the top of this camping playlist with a hard hitting beat and driving synths that will awaken your inner protestor. By the time this one’s over you’ll be breaking something nearby, or at least be rubbing your sore neck from nodding your head to the beat too hard. The latest from Dirty Projectors fills in the middle with some syncopated rhythms and airy vocals making it impossible to resist the urge to move your body. Beyoncé’s little sister follows that up with “Cranes in the sky”, something to test your pipes and sing a long too.
On the back end of the playlist is Iggy Pop with some glam rock and roll reminiscent of David Bowies Station to Station. The Avalanches keep the party going with “Subways” and follow it through to some newer artist in the electronic world Minor Victories and Porches.
There is something for everyone in this mix:
