This past Saturday was the first day of Summer. That means it’s officially the season for cookouts, beach days, camping, music festivals, and spending time chilling outdoors with friends. I think the occasion demands a new mixtape.
However, instead of putting together a normal mixtape, we thought it’d be fun to suggest twenty up-and-coming artists that you can add to make your own rad summer playlist. Of course, as it turns out, the collection makes for a pretty hot Summer soundtrack just as it is.
As you’d expect, several of these tunes are big, upbeat jams – but we provided plenty of chill tracks that we think would be perfect for the after party too. I think you can figure out which is which. Take a listen.
