Sea Girls' Festival Anthems Jukebox playlist

It's time to start getting excited, Dear Reader. We're less than a month away from the unofficial start of our 2019 festival season. That May Day Bank Holiday weekend means one thing - Live At Leeds. Packed with (literally) hundreds of the best new bands on the planet, it sees one of the country's most vibrant creative cities turned into a mecca of buzz, hype and awesome live music.

To celebrate, we're holding a special Live At Leeds takeover. Over the course of the day (11th April 2019, in case you're coming to this late - Ed), we'll be bringing you all kinds of stuff from and about the acts playing this year's event. If you're going, it'll help you plan out those all-important spreadsheets. If you've not yet picked up your tickets - well, what are you waiting for? You can grab 'em here, right now.

Whenever we ask Sea Girls to tip some bands for us (check out Dork’s Festival Guide 2019, ‘FYI’), they always pm pick the exact same ones we would have. The 1975? Check. Wolf Alice? Check. Paramore? OBVIOUSLY. Their next batch of bang-on recommendations comes in the form of this here festival anthems playlist, which you should bung on your stereo immediately.

MGMT - Time to Pretend

Obscene and colourfully tragic, a full hedonistic festival experience in 4 minutes.

The National - Fake Empire

A nice, brooding song for the twilight hour, making you fall in love with everyone around you.

The Killers - When You Were Young

Often overlooked for Mr Brightside, but this is the best festival anthem ever.

Wolf Alice - Don't Delete the Kisses

This captures those elusive, mystical and romantic qualities of a ritualistic gathering.

The 1975 - The Sound

When you want to feel the adrenaline of a thousand pairs of feet leaving the floor in time.

Phoebe Bridgers - Motion Sickness

Every festival needs a bit of quiet contemplation between the madness.

Mitski - Nobody

There's nothing like dancing to a sad song, and Mitski does it like no other!

Phoenix - Lisztomania

Takes you by the hand as the track builds and explodes.

Arcade Fire - Wake Up

The thunderous guitar over thudding drums with the entire audience singing along, epic!

Paramore - Hard Times

Head to toe banger that's bound to get everyone grooving

Jungle - Busy Earnin’

Apocalyptic funk as the sun goes down on a wild weekend is just what the doctor ordered.

Sea Girls play Live At Leeds (4th May), Community (30th June), Sounds of the City (12th July) and more.

Sorry: Workin' 925

Are you ready for a new favourite band? North London's Sorry are low-key cult faves with an immense banger-ratio, and a stonking debut album.
