My attendance a few weeks ago at the strange 4-day escape from reality called Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival marked my fifth year at the event. Early on every year the same doubtful thought runs through my mind: Why do I continue year after year to put myself through this? Sometime between my first use of the less than gleaming porta-potties and the realization that yes, I would indeed be this sweaty and disheveled for the next four days, that moment of panic comes.
Just in time to help ring in another year of freedom for the reigning greatest country in the world, it’s WRVU’s officially certified Party Playlist. Turn Up features hard hitting tracks perfect for getting hyped in any situation.
But wait, there’s more. The party can’t last forever, and eventually you’ll want to dial back the extreme state of excitement Turn Up put you in. We’ve got you covered! Chill out, relax, Turn Down, with this light, friendly mix.
Be sure to follow our Spotify account (WRVUNashville) for easy access to all of our playlists.
Next up in our series of summer Spotify Playlists, 3 hours of picks from DJ Brett Tregoning. Featuring Brian Eno, Death Grips, Aesop Rock, Animal Collective, and much more. For more like it, be sure to check out Brett’s show “Diabeatus” this fall!
Here’s what Brett has to say about it:
Hey WRVU! Summer is well underway and, if you’re anything like me, that means hour and a half long commutes into major metropolitan areas for your internship! Here are some of the tunes that have been keeping me company in the car this summer. These should keep your mind off of the road rage. I have included some Death Grips just in case you need something to blast out your windows to intimidate your fellow motorists.
We’re getting into the hottest part of summer, and our DJs are scattered all across the country and the world right now. Until we resume regular programming in the fall, tide yourself over with these 27 tunes.
This summer-themed Spotify playlist compiled by our staff should be just what you need to kick back and enjoy whatever you’re up to for the next few months. Perfect for the beach, road trips, playing badminton, and more!
