Taking a break at Nelsonville Music Festival 2015.It’s starting to warm up out there. Snapchat is full of short clips from music festivals. And there’s a lot of new stuff on the radio. That can only mean its the beginning of Summer!

No season is as big for music as the summer. Bands are touring, albums are dropping and everyone is putting out their songs for summer in hopes of being the next “Take A Walk”. We, here at Durango Leather Co., may not be able to predict the next mega-hit. However, we do a know a thing or two about music. We’ve been listening to a lot of new stuff recently and are excited to hit up a few festivals this month throughout the Midwest. So, we wanted to show you what we’re into with our Songs of Summer ’15 playlist.

The songs on this list are a mix of what our team has been listening to on their commute as well as the bands we’re excited to see at Bunbury, Firefly and other music festivals this Summer. Some artists you’ll know, and others we’re hoping will be your new favorite band. Here’s the list:
