President Obama Throws A Music Festival

We’ll never have another President as cool as Barack Obama. Earlier this summer, President Obama shared with everyone his summer playlist and not only was it impressive and overlapping with songs that we also listen to – he is now announcing that he’ll be throwing a festival on Monday, October 3rd. The music festival, which will be held at the White House will be called “South by South Lawn: A White House Festival of Ideas, Art, and Action” –┬ácollaborating with SXSW and the American Film Institute.

The festival will feature panel discussions, live musicial performances, and a student film festival. The panels will focus on influencers and community leaders who are doing good in the world.

A lineup for the music festival hasn’t been announced yet, but we have no doubts that this festival won’t include an all-star lineup. In fact, we’re pretty sure that he can get just about anyone to play this so…

Also, if you think that you belong at this event or no someone that should be present, you can actually nominate a guest here.

Camp Flog Gnaw 2016

You guys, Outside Lands is tomorrow and I wasn’t even thinking about it. How far removed we have become in the last few years. Actually though I went to go see HONNE last weekend while I was in LA and it was like the first show that I’d been to in months since February or something. I’d forgotten how happy these used to make me, how expensive they were, and how much time I dedicated to shows every week and then every month.

This lineup looks great though! This is the first time I think I’m actually hearing about this festival, but Alina, The Internet, A$AP, Chance, Schoolboy – the gang’s all here!

It’s important to note that this music festival name was so hard for me to remember that when I searched it in Google right after to find an image of this lineup, I typed in “Camp Flag Gnog.” Nailed it.

Bumbershoot 2016

Every year this lineup comes out and I’m not home in Seattle for it or the festival, I experience a little fomo! Bumbershoot isn’t my childhood, but it’s totally my adolescence and that’s still pretty important. Everyone going to this is so so very lucky!!

Bonnaroo 2016

Somewhere… in the hustle and bustle of life, we completely forgot to share the 2016 lineup! We’re posting it now because this is what we’ve been doing for years and… due diligence.

Outside Lands 2016

How exciting is this lineup?! LIONEL RICHIE AMIRITE?!

Okay, but actually this is probably one of the first lineups from Outside Lands since I’ve been living here that I’m a little bit excited about. I haven’t quite made up my mind just yet, but Snakehips Miguel, Miike Snow, Kehlani, and Years & Years could change my mind. Actually – who are we kidding – Kehlani is ENOUGH for me to make me want to go.

Lollapalooza 2016

Every year Coachella’s the first to come out with their lineup and everyone loses their minds over it, but really – the best lineup I feel like always comes from Lollapalooza. This is just phenomenal.

Panorama Music Festival 2016

From the creators of Coachella…

The festival will take place in the same location as Governor’s Ball and my guess is that Governor’s Ball organizers aren’t happy about it.

Way Back – Hardly Strictly Blue Grass

This photo goes wayyyyy back all the way to fall this past October! Mandi and I had one of our usual hangouts and she had suggested that we check out the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival at Golden Gate Park. After two years of living in this area, I’d never checked it out, but a lot of people I had known had attended it every year. In comparison to most music festivals that I’ve been to, this one was probably, by far, the most chill. There were families around, no one was trying to push to the front, everyone was just on blankets. I also didn’t feel like any sense of urgency to do anything, which is great. I wasn’t sure what to wear to a bluegrass festival so I really just threw these things altogether, but the boots were both a good and bad choice. They were great because they were able to get really dusty, but bad because these aren’t exactly the easiest boots to walk in. I know you’ve all heard the story about how I snagged this find at a HUGE discount, but even still – for how much these boots cost normally, they should at least be walkable, am I right?
