[EVENT & PLAYLIST] First City Festival
We almost don't believe it's been a whole year since First City Festival, but time has inevitably flown by and we have found ourselves nearing the end of August yet again.
Last year, we drove up from Santa Barbara for the festival, slept overnight in Lauren's car in a parking lot (classy), and drove back down very late on the Sunday night. This year, Lauren is over in New York and Nicola will be in Mexico for the weekend, so we'll sadly be missing out on this weekend of music and carnival rides.
This year's line up is not quite as amazing as last years, in our opinion, but we could be saying this simply to make ourselves feel better about missing out. Headliners such as Beck and The National will grace the staged over the weekend, as well as a host of other great artists such as Unknown Mortal Orchestra, San Fermin, The Men, Connan Mockasin, Mr Little Jeans, Sleepy Sun & Quilt.
Have a listen to our playlist below, and if you are heading along this weekend, be sure to go say hi to Nicola's housemate Liz selling her Jewelry in the marketplace.
