We’re pretty sure, that most of our readers have experienced being at a festival, and most have probably even been trying out the camping life at one of DK’s finest, biggest festivals. So have we – and every year we can’t help wonder, who decides the camp soundtrack?
I remember walking around at Roskilde Festival and hearing Call Me Maybe about 1000 times. Yes, we all remember that year when Carly Rae Jepsen ruled the world; weird and confusing times it was. The first couple of times you walk by a camp and they’re all screaming along to it, well, it’s fun – but from the third or fourth listen, you get closer and closer to packing up your stuff and just leave.
Reviewing that soundtracks from the last couple of years, you get the idea that these songs should be fun, everyone should be able to sing along and such – but festival living could/should be a place where you broaden your musical horizon, learn new music and fall in love with bands you’ve never heard about before. If there’s a song you are to hear every 5th minute for an entire week, why not make it a good song?
We asked all our writers to suggest one song as the festival soundtrack in 2015, and we hope that you’d provide some suggestions as well. Either way – enjoy!
