Festival Mixtape: Body & Soul 2014


Boasting one of the strongest festival line-ups this summer, Body and Soul returns to the labyrinthine and picturesque Ballinlough Castle, Co. Westmeath from June 20-22. Closely connected to the tradition of the Summer Solstice –  a thousand year old celebration to honour the sun – the festival has struck a fantastic balance between the very best acts in electronica (and elsewhere) and visual/performance art over the last few years, increasingly establishing itself as an annual showcase with its very own unique draw and charm.

With exactly one week to go to the festival, we have compiled a fifteen-track Body & Soul playlist on Spotify, featuring tracks from the likes of Goldfrapp, Of Montreal, Jon Hopkins, Tom Vek, Darkside, Mount Kimbie, Gary Numan (pictured) and more. Go here to buy tickets and check out our playlist below.
