Post image for Bonnaroo Vs. Firefly: Which Lineup Wins?

This week, two more of the summer’s biggest festivals announced their lineups and we’re having a hard time deciding which one we like more!  Bonnaroo has always been one of my favorite festivals – I’ve been several times since the beginning, but I always kind of felt like the lineups were never as good as the first year that I went. Well, this year they outdid themselves and put together what may be one of the best lineups of the summer.  Firefly is a young festival, only in its second year, but they have put out a very impressive lineup, too.

I'll be at both, though I do have to say I am disappointed (but not disappointed enough not to go lol).. No Phish at Bonaroo? No Umphreys? No cheese? AND NO FLAMING LIPS? and the headliner is mumford? how much more cliche could they have gotten? Also, I mean I'm as much of a Tom Petty fan as the next person... but I mean come on.. the headliner at BOTH firelfy and bonaroo? I almost feel like the line ups are too similar as well. However, I was given tickets so I'll be at both :) I think the real party is gonna be at forecastle, and i am sooooo excited!!! 3 NIGHTS OF CHEESE :D !! Also, I snagged early bird tix to Floyd Fest which I'm really excited for as the ambiance seems very different from the rest.. not so party party, more relaxed! And Phish just announced tour dates -- GORGE!! ahhh summer come quicker :) For the Philly folk.. my analogy was that Bonaroo is xpn, if Firefly is 104.5!

Today I wanted to share some new music that is making me so excited for this year and what’s to come.  It’s great when bands you know and love release new music, but there’s also something so rewarding about discovering a new band and a whole new sound that you just can’t seem to shake from your head.

Post image for Musicians Wanted! Get Your Song Featured In A Free People Video

UPDATE: This post originally ran on July 29, 2012, but we have a bunch of videos in mind for the near future and are always searching for new artists to support!

One of the best parts of my job here at Free People is I get to make fun videos for the blog (like this and this). It’s been a hobby of mine for as long as I can remember, so this has been an absolute dream come true for me! We would love to start using these videos as a way to spread the word about up and coming artists… and that’s where you come in. Read more »

Leonard Cohen- The best of comforting whenever you feel lonely or sad! My favourite track is Chelsea Hotel, I always picture the beautiful encounters Cohen and Janis Joplin must have had when he sings about her :)

Post image for Playlist: Songs For Bikes

Inspired by our January catalog and its bicycle theme, I originally set out to create a playlist of songs about bikes. However, as I was going through our music library on RDIO I kept finding songs that evoke the same feeling as the catalog – the feeling of fresh air sweeping past you as you ride, giving your cheeks that perfect rosy glow.  Read more »
