This year's music...

Postby tinxwinx » Wed Jul 20, 2011 12:31 pm

Last years music of choice was dubstep. As much as I despise dubstep, I feel it fit metropolis nicely. With rites of passage being this years theme, I wonder what the music genre of choice will be. Any ideas people?

As long as the folks with the big sound are enchanted with dubstep, that's what we'll get. I know Basscamp is still steppin'.

The music wafting onto Divorce St. from our camp will be classic rock n roll along with some heavy metal, acid rock, a few pop, R&B, blues and select techno/trance.

My guess is glitch hop and drumstep as the more popular choices this year :mrgreen:

People will bring and play an abundance of most genres, in my experience it's mostly a matter of finding what resonates with you. Whatever I've brought out with me, or whatever pre-event suspicions I might have about what I might like best or connect with most usually end up getting turned on their ear anyway, so this year I'm trying to head out without many pre-conceived ideas.
