Cinco semanas, cinco fiestas, cinco ciudades: ¡Subject60 cerca de ti!

El 27 de mayo va a darse el pistoletazo de salida de Subject60 con una fiesta por todo lo alto en Berlín, seguida de 4 noches más de juerga en Londres (2 de junio), Milán, París (16 de junio) y Madrid (24 de junio). Como anfitriones en las fiestas estarán la destacada artista e icono de la moda Lykke Li y Face Hunter, el fotógrafo y blogger que ofrece regalos para la vista para quienes tienen hambre de estilo. Junto con sus colegas DJs que no pasan desapercibidos en la calle ni en los locales, han estado montando una buena por toda Europa, y van a armarla también cerca de ti y muy pronto.

Nosotros les pedimos que creasen sus propias listas juerguistas especiales, a las que te puedes suscribir a través de la página de perfil de Volvo Subject60.

Por si fuera poco, también tenemos entradas gratis para regalar para las codiciadas fiestas de París, Londres y Madrid.

Para ganarlas, todo lo que tienes que hacer es crear tu propia lista juerguista y fiestera y publicarla aquí, en el blog. El que cree la mejor ganará entradas para la fiesta exclusiva Subject60 de su ciudad.

Eso sí: juerguista y fiestera pero con estilo. Si tiene algo que no puedas decir delante de tu abuela, seguramente no tenga nivel para la fiesta.

¡Buena suerte! ¡A crear!

Courtney Love’s Playlist
First up we have we have a very special playlist from a female rock legend, Courtney Love. The lead singer of Hole told us, “I’ve been listening to a lot of female vocalists singing about men lately; A lot of old jazz/blues standards.” This ‘list features classic tracks from some of the greatest, and most troubled, female vocalists of all time such as Etta James, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday and more comtempary artists, PJ Harvey, Mazzy Star and Cat Power. A fantastic insight into the songwriter’s current musical musings.

The Soundtrack to April
One of the tracks of the year so far from Kelis and new audio goodness from LCD Soundsystem are just 2 of the reasons why it’s worth listening to the Soundtrack to April. Comprised of new releases from near and far, this series of playlists is one of our most popular.
