FYF 2013: Spotify Playlist (and Schedule!)



UPDATE (8/18): Schedule is out! See you there.

Hard Summer 2013 is in the books and after the LA State Historic Park conceded ground to blissfully-E'd-out neon-splashed candy-ravers last weekend, the park will concede ground again on August 24 and 25 but this time to indie-punk-electro-rock-hop-gaze hipsters.

To prepare myself for FYF 2013, I have created a playlist on Spotify to include at least one song from each band playing at FYF, so follow Pet Bear Sounds on Spotify and subscribe to the FYF 2013 playlist!

I think the lineup is fantastic this year: Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On The Radio, Devendra Banhart, Toro Y Moi, My Bloody Valentine, MGMT, Beach House, Solange, Washed Out, Holy Ghost!, !!!, etc. etc. Can't wait for this mini-Coachella.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, it's one big playlist for both days and it's organized by how the bands are laid out on the FYF poster. So, on Saturday we start with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and end with Waxahatchee then go right into the headliners on Sunday (My Bloody Valentine) down to Antwon and his song "Dying In The Pussy." Yup. "Dying In The Pussy." Not a typo.

HARD SUMMER 2013



Super excited about HARD Summer 2013! Enclosed in the red boxes above (thanks, MS Paint) are the acts that I definitely want to see.

My apologizes to Mr. 2 Chainz for going with SBTRKT's DJ set over yours. I've been wearing out the Disclosure album and I can't wait to see their set. Mix in a bit of Dog Blood and TNGHT before watching some Alex Metric. Then closing out Saturday night with Knife Party. My apologies to Oliver. Though, maybe I'll swing over there for a quick disco nap.

Sunday, I definitely want to make it to Crystal Castles and then onwards to Breakbot (apologies to Ms. Azealia Banks, though you were fantastic at Coachella). I've somehow missed Empire of the Sun at every other festival but I'm definitely making a point to see those wacky Australians. Definitely looking forward to Zedd who I think has really successfully blended a lot of that older trance style with modern vibes. And even though it's just a DJ set, I can't wait for Justice (I felt like I was cheated with their short set the last time they were at Coachella).

See you there!
