This Week’s Playlist: ACL Festival 2013 Highlights
Editor’s note: This article was originally published October 14, 2013
True confession time: This Week’s Playlist is actually Last Week’s Playlist. Well, not exactly.
It’s just that, in case you hadn’t noticed there’s been a music festival in town and the better part of Team 360 has spent the last two weeks trudging around Zilker Park gorging on the smogasbord of sounds at ACL Festival 2013. So instead of building a second ACL Fest Highlights playlist we decided to expand the one we already have into THE definitive ACL Fest Highlights playlist.
Some of our favorite artists from week one appear in the week two section of the playlist (new tracks are stacked at the top) with the playlist kicking off with the same bombastic blasts at the beginning of “One Foot” that kicked off Fun.’s gloriously jubilant weekend two Friday set. Other artists with sounds so nice we included them twice include festival sleeper hits Vintage Trouble and Jake Buggand killer set standout artist Kendrick Lamar.
Artists making their debut in week two of the highlights playlist include Deap Vally, Hundred Waters, Portugal. The Man and Valerie June. Also new on the list is Muse, a band that totally won me as a fan on Friday night.
