Fantasy Festival Mixtape

20 Jul

I’ve been particularly slack on the mixtape front lately, so here’s my (long-overdue) Fantasy Festival Mixtape.

The rules, as set by Swashbuckling Stuff:

You get 8 bands, 2 newcomers, 2 normals, 2 for the sundown, a 2nd top and a headliner. You can have 1 reform. The headliner gets 4 songs, 2nd gets 3, 3rd and 4th get 2 and your first 4 get 1 each – Total of 15.

So, here’s the line up and my (stolen) logo (I’m neither extra strong nor bitter):

The Magnetic Fields – Papa was a Rodeo, Take ecstasy with me, I’m sorry I love you, the luckiest guy on the lower east side

Bright Eyes – Touch, Bowl of oranges, Let’s not shit ourselves (to love and to be loved)

Tilly and The Wall – Nights of the living dead, Reckless
Moldy Peaches – Anyone else but you, Who’s got the crack

Friendly Fires – On Board (I wanted Hawaiian Air but it’s not on Spotify)
Hot Chip – Down with Prince

Gold Panda – You
Warpaint – Undertow

A few words on health and safety at my festival, sunglasses and hipster haircuts are mandatory at all times:

safety goggles must be worn at all times sunglasses hipster festival

No jester hats, no morons, no sleep ’til Brooklyn, no chants (unless you’re a festival LAD).

Camping tickets can be exchanged for wristbands over there, the bar is open…

      “I’m next to a tent! And a flag! No, the other flag. By the stage… No, the other stage… Yep, next to someone wearing a Jester hat…”
