The Parklife Mix Tape and Reviews

I’m a little excited about Parklife this year. The line up seems to be a little more diverse than last year and also a lot deeper in talent. Last year had a couple of big acts but this year is going to have me rocking all day.

But as with a lot of music I have no idea who plays what song until I hear it. So to help any one else out who has the same problem, here is my Parklife mix tape of all the artists that are playing at Parklife with a few extras thrown in for the Perth locals that are playing at my event.

For the full list of artists playing at your festival please see

Here’s my list of the bands playing, a YouTube link to an example of my snippet like review of each:

Magnetic Man

Could we see a Magnetic Man and Katy B feature?

The Naked And Famous

Punching in A Deam – Top song

Young Blood – Another great song

The Streets

Bit of an old classic aren’t they. Here’s a couple of my favourites.

Fit But You Know It – Love this one

Don’t Mug Yourself – Yeah, been in this situation

Wolfgang Gartner

Illmerica – Reminded me a bit of Daft Punk but not quite as good

Undertaker – Not really rocking me

Yacht Club DJs

Tamborine Dream – They kind of do these crazy mix ups. Saw them at falls and they were pretty good

Touch – Old classics mixed good

Perth Locals


Not quite sure I get it. There’s some dubstep influence but it seems a little unrefined.

Black and Blunt

Can’t Get Enough – Not bad. Worth watching if they are one of the early sets

Carl Fox

The Key – They are pretty big here in Perth. Hopefully an in person live review from Saturday night as they’re playing. This songs not bad


This sounds pretty awesome to be honest. Heaps of energy. Too short though!

Dorcia DJs

Nothing found for this one

Sam Perry

Halo – Seen this guy a couple of times and he’s pretty good. Layers all the sounds himself. Would love a Kimbra vs Sam Perry set.

Sun City

Alright but not super impressive. Sort of poppy rock dance.

Tee El and Blend

Nothing found for this one

The Pearly Whites

Dubstep mixes. Not a bad sound to some of the stuff they do.

The Substance

Suckerpunch – This is just a teaser. Not teasing enough as I wasnt that impressed.

Tom Drummond vs JMC

Not bad but not sure.
