Faux-Chella Playlist

After a few days spent reviewing and writing in my little ‘cave’ while enjoying the longer days always making me more productive, I finally showed up outside my flat, blinded by the sun and blown-away by the warm weather London felt in the mood to offer this week. It felt like summer, or at least, it felt like it was just around the corner! So I closed my eyes and started thinking of the beautiful summer days to come, and with it, Festival season…

Very quickly, I found myself almost back in the 1970s, surrounded by the oh so typical hippie SLASH boho-chic-styled youth, with their hats and vintage sunglasses on, carrying these soft multi-coloured blankets to sit on, and wearing mixed patterns, earth-tone-coloured ankle boots and denim shorts spreading a REALLY cool vibe!

Once there, the show is never late starting. And that’s what’s so exciting about festivals. It’s good music and sheer escapism around the clock… artists singing and playing with an open heart, taking on board a hoard of souls looking to fill the void their daily life left them…

In order to get excited about this great time of the year, TickPick and I customised a poster for the no-fee ticket marketplace’s very own Faux-Chella – in other words, TickPick’s fun little take on Coachella!

TickPick is offering cheap tickets for gigssporting events and more all year round! And this year, they’re creating customisable festival posters to get people excited about Festival season!

On my personalised poster, I created what would be one of my dream festival lineups, featuring some of my favourite singers, musicians, and bands.  All of them give me a sense of here and now, a feeling of sweet freedom and enthralling escapism. 

* PLAYLIST *

☮ London Grammar – Wasting my young years /// I listen to these ethereal vocals, and I feel like I’m swaying in the air. I’m hanging on… my heart has stopped beating for a while, I feel as fragile and breakable as the singer, and my head is bombarded by millions of questions… 

☮ The Fray –  How to save a life /// The show continues with a warm voice, letting me perceive some brokenness and a soul opening itself in broad day light, saving everyone’s life at the very moment of the stirring performance…

☮ Aurora – Half the world away /// Now taking off, leaving the dry ground, and heading to the night sky… A few seconds pass and I am face to face with the moon… 

☮ James Bay – Stealing cars /// Flying back down to the rhythm of James Bay’s guitar strings, I am celebrating summer around a sparkling campfire, planning on tomorrow’s getaway… 

☮ Coldplay – Hymn for the weekend /// Tomorrow has come and it has thrown a party in the air, in a jungle of multi-coloured clouds… 

☮ Kate Voegele – Lift me up /// This amazing and empowering song by talented and Kate Voegele always makes me experience some sort of fight to be won, a peak to reach alone… 

☮ Freelance Whales – Location /// Now entering another dimension, Freelance Whales is taking me down a very folk and at the same time very angelic road… 

☮ Lifehouse – Between the raindrops /// In a similar genre, mixing both strength and fragility in their voice, Lifehouse is taking me by the hand and walking between the raindrops with me… 

☮ Satellite – Grace alone /// Truly immersing the audience in the 1970s/1980s, Satellite offers a great vintage and folk song, making everyone time travel… 

☮ Balcony – Don’t leave me blind  /// With their very aerial sound, Balcony is dealing ecstasy in the form of music, taking the audience down to some kind of rabbit hole, where fragility, passion and beauty merge to perfection. / This summer, Balcony will be playing at Farr Festival
