As I’m sure we’re all well aware, judging by the exponentially high rate of flower crowns on our Instagram feeds or what have you: festival season is very much upon us. In the past I’ve been to Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza; in the future I have Coachella dreams; but this summer I’m THRILLED to be experiencing my very first Capitol Hill Block Party (CHBP) in Seattle (and Squamish Valley festival in Canada…but that’s a story for another day).
CHBP is a festival that takes over part of the Capitol Hill neighborhood in late July for a weekend of music, street food and general debauchery. More acts were released for the lineup this week, and I couldn’t help myself but to make a playlist to get amped.
In combination with the unnecessary amount of “justified festival purchases” i’ve been making at the thrift store I think I’m on the way to being ready for a summer full of music.

It’s a rainy Sunday in Seattle so, naturally, I’m picking the raisins out of my leftover hiking granola and making every excuse not to go outside. Luckily I’ve been able to bide my time pretty effectively because SXSW started on Friday and I had a lot of music to dive into.
South by Southwest is a festival that happens every year in March in Austin, Texas. It plays host to music, film, and interactive components giving festival goers the opportunity to experience hundreds of artists and experts from all over the world. It’s the gateway to festival season and a festival that is (and has been) on my to-do list for ASAP.

For the last two years when SXSW has rolled around I’ve scoped out their artist lineup and found SO many new bands to obsess about (and to stalk tour schedules for when they’ll hit the city I’m in). This year…I may have gone a little crazy with my playlist, but I couldn’t help myself because there were SO many good musicians on the roster.
I present to you my Ultimate SXSW 2015 playlist–I literally scoured every genre and alphabetized breakdown list of who was performing which resulted in nearly 20 hours of music. Oops?
Live vicariously through this playlist with me! (Even if it doesn’t come with food trucks dishing out aromatic BBQ or tacos.)
