Quick interlude: Here’s where to start.
Different styles of music energize different people. I’m a synth guy – a trip to Tomorrowland would expose me to the most progressive and body bouncin’ music that Earth has to offer. Different festivals are geared towards different styles of music, and these events are in fact curated lists of awesome music. Very generous folks laboriously compile these songs in to a playlist and make them accessible via one click of the mouse.
A very profound realization dawned on me that devoting hours to following music blogs is not needed to fill my musical arsenal with great music. These graciously generated festival and event playlists are the sneak-peaks needed by a lot of people.
Bonus round! Here’s a birthday present that I made for myself.
