Songs that lend a voice to the equestrian world in a way only music can.
Hey ya! The Coachella Music and Arts Festival is just one day away! This three-day event, held on the perfect green grass of the Empire Polo Club Fields, boasts a lineup befitting the beautiful equestrian venue. So it’s not surprising that, from Outkast to Rudimental, so many 100% Sound artists will be in attendance.
In a three-day series from 100% Sound, I will be teasing the next day at Coachella with a playlist of all the bands equestrians must see! And even if you can’t join us on the fields, take this opportunity to revel in 100% Sound greats and to learn some new sounds well suited to the equestrian sensibility.
I begin with Friday. This line up promises sweet sounds in the desert sun and dancing all night long. Previously featured artist, Aloe Blacc, will take the stage early in the day with his acoustic version of “Wake Me Up,” and long after the sun goes down, Outkast is sure to serenade the crowd with a rousing version of “Hey Ya!”
New to the 100% Sound family is singer/songwriter Neko Case, who actually has horses of her own, and frequently sings about animals. And she is in good company with the likes of Tom Odell, Broken Bells and Girl Talk – all artists I hope to include in upcoming playlists.
So sit back, imagine the perfect desert oasis scene, and chill out to the sounds of Coachella with this Day 1 playlist. Or, even better yet, get up and move those dancing feet!
