Sunday Slaylist: Tech-Fest 2013

Tech-Fest 2013 Thrash Hits

Earlier this week, the folks over in charge of Tech-Fest 2013 made their first line-up announcement – and they weren’t messing about. 25 bands, including all three major headline acts, were all covered in the first batch of names. That’s the kind of festival announcement we can get behind, and the kind that we’re making the subject of this week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist.

No doubt more bands will be added to the Tech-Fest 2013 line-up in the coming weeks, but the beauty of Spotify is that we can update our festival-based playlists when new bands are added, and if you’re subscribed to our playlists then you’ll automatically be updated when we do. Hell, if you’re subscribed to our DesertFest playlist, you’ll have seen us add a whole load of new tracks yesterday. Spotyify even goes as far to indicate to you which tracks you’ve listened to on our playlists now. That’s pretty swish.

Spotify is available to most of Europe, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, and a load of other countries for free – though obviously you’re better off shelling out either £5 or £10 a month for one of Spotify’s premium packages, as then you can listen to our Slaylists without having them interrupted by adverts. For our readers in countries not currently serviced by Spotify….save up some money and come over to the UK in July, and then you can come and experience Tech-Fest in the really-real world.

Watch the “video” (ahem) Xerath made for their cover of Rush’s ‘YYZ’. Maybe they’ll play it at Tech-Fest?

Tickets for Tech-Fest 2013 are on sale now, starting at £66 for a weekend-only ticket, but that doesn’t include, camping, fees, and all the other stuff that goes with buying a festival ticket these days. Click here to hand over your money.
