Packed Lunch Playlist

This Week's Packed Lunch Playlist

Your favourite lunchbreak is back for 2022. Dining el desko? Treat yourself to a delicious sample of music from the Festival each Tuesday. You bring the leftovers, we’ll provide three tasty tunes.

This week, with the Festival in full swing, we’re in party mode. So get ready to thrown you hands in the air and boogie in your chair. Bon Appetit!

Nothing gets a dancefloor party going like a Confidence Man banger. This live clip from their recent Glastonbury appearance will have you all fired for their Festival show.

When a gospel choir and a DJ come together the dancefloor rejoices. Here’s just a taste of what Sunshine and Disco Faith Choir bring to the party.

We’re closing the Festival with the divine voice of Ngaiire – it’ll be a more mellow Sunday night party vibe that you won’t want to miss!
