{brilliant beats} dcode festival edition

We're off to Madrid today for the dcode Festival! When I heard that Kasabian was headlining I knew that we had to go, especially since one of Joe's best friends lives there (i.e. instant crash pad). I'm beyond excited to check out our first international music festival...here are a few faves that I'm really looking forward to seeing:

I will forever be grateful to my friend Matt Petrone for introducing me to Kasabian back in 2005. I was instantly a fan but have never had the chance to see them - it.is.on!

A taste of home with LA's Foster The People. I'm madly in love with this song right now.

The last time I saw The Ting Tings perform was at a Nylon Magazine party in LA. I will always say yes to seeing them live, they are too much fun.

Been dying to see The Sounds since college. I just love the attitude in her voice and their simple but dance-inducing beats.

Even if you aren't into electronic dance music, you've just gotta be a fan of this song. Crystal Castles really opened my mind to enjoying this genre after seeing them at Coachella in 2009.
