It's one of our favorite times of year - summer music festivals are officially in full swing! For those who haven't been, these major parties are often life-changing events. Here are GRACESHIP's favorite, fresh and new songs from this summer's hottest artists who you can see live this summer:
On Saturday, August 4, find Santigold in Chicago's Grant Park at Lollapalooza. The track Disparate Youth can be found on her up and coming album, Master of My Make-Believe (out on May 1). Full of funky beats and catchy lyrics, this tune will have you dancing in no time. Santigold is also on the roster at other music festivals and concerts around the world, so check out her tour page to see when she's headed your way.
"The Rifle's Spiral" - The Shins
Also at Lollapalooza this year are indie veterans, The Shins. After planning an extensive, international tour and releasing their new album, Port of Morrow, The Shins are virtually unstoppable. Their new song, The Rifle's Spiral, is quirky and upbeat. The undertones of the keyboard, mixed with the thumping bass lines and a constant drum beat are some of of our favorite parts.
Lollapalooza is still a few months away, but Bonnaroo is coming up quick. One, must-see, band at Bonnaroo is Two Door Cinema Club. This three-piece band isn't new to the circuit, but they rank high on our summer playlist of feel-good music. Have a listen and you'll find out why.
If you plan on making moves at one of these monumental events, be sure to take your GRACESHIP bag. It's the perfect size to stash all of your festival necessities for a day of fun in the sun!
