The Perfect Playlists For All Your End of Summer Events

How is it August already?! Summer — those endless bluebird sky days full of heat-soaked skin and salty hair — is coming to a close and I for one am frantically scheduling left and right. I need at least one more weekend at a lake house, complete with sandy toes and Chardonnay (sometimes #basic is best), plus many more pool days, beach days, and dinner parties, with an outdoor concert or two thrown in. August, I’m comin’ for ya.

And what better way to score this mania than with the perfect summer soundtrack — from pre-gaming that festival to a starlit backyard dinner. But (believe me) there is nothing worse than queuing up Spotify on your perfect end-of-summer evening, only to make it through one and a half songs before you get a data overage text message and your life is basically ruined.  

Which is why we ❤️ SIMPLE Mobile for offering a $50 for truly unlimited plan for 30 days — a unicorn package we’ve been dreaming of for years. Enjoy exceptional streaming as video typically streams at DVD quality. No complicated mumbo-jumbo contracts that no one has time to read anyway. Just simple (do you see what I did there) plans with no hidden fees. 

Goodbye data overage texts (see you never), hello perfect playlist.

Speaking of — we’ve compiled the only five playlists you need to end your summer with a bang. Welcome to your August soundtrack…
