Your 2019 Summer Playlist

Ava Bratina, Student Writer

In order for you to have the perfect summer, you need the perfect playlist. Driving in your car with the windows down, sitting on the beach, hanging out with friends, or just laying in bed are activities that require the perfect songs. You need songs that you can sing to until you lose your voice, songs you can dance to until you can’t move, songs you can cry to as you leave for college, and songs you can just listen to as an escape for a while.

It’s clear that all of us will likely be at the beach at some point this summer, so this is a good place to start. For me, Country is always something I listen to while at the beach so here are a few songs that would be perfect to add to your ‘Beach Playlist’:

  • Talk You Out of It by FGL
  • All Summer Long by Kid Rock
  • Rumor by Lee Brice
  • Look What God Gave Her by Thomas Rhett
  • Millionaire by Chris Stapleton
  • Make it Sweet by Old Dominion

A popular venue for the perfect Country concert around our area is the BB&T pavilion located in Camden, New Jersey. Starting around the end of May, the Country concerts begin with Luke Bryan. Along with him, there will be several more concerts featuring Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts, Cole Swindell, Dan + Shay, and many more. You can go see all these concerts for only 175 dollars plus fees if you buy the 2019 XTU Country Megaticket. Emily Bruno, a junior at Pennridge, has been to several country concerts at BB&T. She states that the “venue is just so nice, it’s a good environment and everyone there is always having fun.” She recommends country concerts over pop concerts because “everyone just wants to have a good time and you make a bunch of friends.”

If you’re not a big country fan, there are plenty of other songs that can get you in the summer mood. These are some songs I picked to keep your summer fun and light. These aren’t songs you have to be at the beach to listen to; you can listen to these anytime.

  • Talk by Khalid
  • Thinking Bout You by Ciara

The well-known summer festival, Firefly,  has live performances by genre-bending artists. Delanie Wolff, a senior at Pennridge, attended Firefly in the summer of 2018. The festival is “located in Dover, Delaware, is in the middle of June (14-17), and it lasts for four days.” She states that “the atmosphere is pretty laid back during the day, at night however it can get a bit overcrowded and crazy.” If you are interested in artists such as Panic! At the Disco, Post Malone, Travis Scott and Tyler the Creator, this festival might be for you!
