Couldn’t make it to Coachella this weekend? Or maybe large crowds just give you anxiety. No worries, I’ve gone ahead and taken the liberty of putting together a nice little playlist of some of the artists that will be taking the stage and rocking out. You get the best of both worlds: you can enjoy the sounds safely in the comfort of your own home without having to even put on your best Coachella outfit! Sure, it’s not quite the same, but hey, the bathroom line is a whole lot shorter.

If you aren’t a part of the “I Hate Love” Club, it’s quite possible that you love a good love song. Cheesy, yes, but these saccharin sweet ditties will have you bouncing in your seat in no time.
So, let’s say you’re not into the love fest that is Valentine’s Day. Nothing wrong with that (and you are not alone, my friend). Some of my most fun Valentine’s Days were not spent lamenting love, but cutting loose with friends instead. Whether that included cupcakes and sappy rom-com’s at home or dancing on tables at Cipriani, a playlist was needed. I found it much easier than expected to compile a list of songs that will have love as the furthest thing from your mind.
Yes, this playlist is called Turtle Dance Party. Yes, that is also how it is saved in my iTunes. No, we won’t get into that nickname today. All you need to know is that this playlist will make even the slowest of turtles wanna come out of his shell.
For the last several weeks this is all I have listened to on the train, during my workouts, painting my nails…. cause my USB cords just keep magically disappearing preventing me from creating anything new… Who am I kidding? I love this mix.
Couldn’t make it to Coachella this year? You’re not alone, my friend. Let’s look on the bright side- no port-o-potties for you! Plus, no need to stress out about what to wear. In an attempt to make up for it, here’s a playlist chocked full of artists taking the stage this year:
