FESTIVALIST ’12: Music Midtown Playlists

In preparation for Music Midtown 2012, I opted for streaming playlists instead of compiling downloadable mixtapes (UPDATE: Here is a download anyways). This seemed to make the most sense for 2 reasons: a) Most of you probably already have these songs, b) I’m curious what your go-to streaming playlist service is. While Spotify can’t legally […]

Not only is it the 2nd year for this unique festival, its even bigger than 2010’s inagural event. An air conditioned […]
