It’s no secret, the Mixtape Magazine crew can’t help but gravitate towards the swamp magic of SappyFest in Sackville, N.B. every mid-summer. It’s like camp, a family reunion (the good kind) and a dream all wrapped in one. Every year the festival has a slogan that ends up as a central theme or idea that flows throughout the weekend. This year it’s “No Secrets”. That’s why we started this paragraph with those two words and even threw it in the headline even if it’s not click-bait or super SEO friendly. Just being honest here.
On to the music. Below is a 30-song Spotify playlist of the artists playing the three-day festival from August 4-6. It’s in somewhat chronological order based on where artists slot into the schedule. Hit shuffle if you want, but that defeats the purpose. Mainstage headliner bands this year include Daniel Romano, Weaves and Partner.
