At least in the United States, the annual festival that is best at promoting itself is the Hangout Music Festival, which is held in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Among the approaches to getting the word out and creating some “goodwill,” the Hangout promoters offer a mixtape of songs from bands attending the festival. This year is no different.
The 2014 offer is available at Noisetrade and is embedded below. Just "mouse click” the arrow within the offer to see and listen to the entire list. The bands are from a variety of genres, including Hard Rock, Reggae, Folk and Soft Rock. Since the Soundcloud streams are more easily sampled, the Soundcloud waveforms of some of the songs (representing the variety of genres) are included.
“You” by The 1975
“Cardiac Arrest" by Bad Suns
Reggae - “She Still Loves Me" by SOJA (featuring Collie Buddz)
Rock - “Are You Satisfied" by Reignwolf
Folk - "What the World Made" by Desert Noises
Electronica – "Sparklers" by Gemini Club
