Put the Festival in your pocket

Curious about this year’s lineup? Listen to the Reader’s specially-tailored Festival playlist

I’m always eager to discover new music, so when the Festival at Sandpoint recently announced several acts I wasn’t so familiar with, I got to searching them up on Spotify and adding the tracks I liked to my personal playlists.

It got us here at the Reader thinking: Why not make a Festival playlist for the community to share? So let it be known, “Festival @ Sandpoint 2019” is live on Spotify right now, hosted by our “The Sandpoint Reader” Spotify account.

Screenshot from the Spotify playlist for the Festival at Sandpoint 2019.

For the playlist, I chose five of the most popular songs from each headliner — Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Walk Off The Earth, Jackson Browne, Lake Street Dive, The Avett Brothers and Kool & The Gang — as well as one personal pick from each discography. For the supporting acts — Lucius, Shook Twins, Darlingside, Che Apalache and Leroy Bell — I choose three random tracks, some popular and some just my personal choices.

My personal top five tracks from “Festival @ Sandpoint 2019” are:

1. “You Worry Me” by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

2. “Turn It Around” by Lucius

3. “Stay Wild” by Shook Twins

4. “Ain’t No Man” by The Avett Brothers

5. “Ladies Night” by Kool & The Gang

If I had to sum up this year’s lineup in just one word, it would undoubtedly be “groovy.” Sure, the genres vary, but it seems every artist set to grace the Festival stage in 2019 brings their own brand of groove, and I can’t wait to tap my feet to the beat.
