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:
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…
