The Festival Beat: Know Your Lineup
Fletcher is a pop song writer whose lyrics run a little deeper. The themes she sings about range from simple love songs to the adolescent search for meaning or the questioning of gender roles. Def an artist to watch.
Ayokay writes upbeat floating tracks with subtle piano accents. When he gets to the drop; the beat seems to land in a bed of feathers. Now imagine all that coupled with the promise that you’ll be pumped up not sleepy after his set. Enjoy.
Roadkill Ghost Choir first came on our radar playing the smallest stage at GMF in Tampa a few years ago. They look like they grew up on medal and play their roots-rock tunes as though they were thrashers. Fans of War on Drugs and Foals shouldn’t miss this set.
Don’t let Saint Wknd’s non-descript singles on Spotify confuse you- we saw this man open for Mija and he definitely knows how to play to the crowd and get people moving.
The trap scene has left a lot of rap with a more drawn out flow. Enter Warm Brew; a hip-hop trio from Cali that can write a song about shakin asses and gettin money without making us feel like we’re listening to a pop track. Thanks guys.
