Summer festivals are in full swing, and thousands of fans are preparing to flock to Chicago's Union Park this weekend for a three-day entertainment extravaganza. In its ninth year, Pitchfork Music Festival boasts a variety of bands across the music spectrum, including alternative, hip-hop, punk, and electronica genres. But what makes this Chicago summer staple stand out is its risk-taking lineups: While other music fests emphasize acts with mass appeal that are guaranteed to draw a crowd, Pitchfork commonly throws in new, lesser-known acts that are either underground or breaking ground.

Take this playlist for example. While headliners like Beck and Kendrick Lamar are reimagining their respective genres, they'll be in the company of other artists creating entirely new genres out of thin air. To that end, the mix below includes a track from Orange Is the New Black favorite Tune-Yards, hypnotic loops from The Field, and a some ghostly electro-pop from the Grimes. Plus, you'll find the breakthrough track from St. Vincent-who'll be a certain favorite following her back-to-back performances on Saturday Night Live and fronting Nirvana at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.

Like the Pitchfork festival itself, this playlist is perfect for mixing it up. With moderate to brisk BPM's, there's a song here that will liven up your next workout for sure, and who knows, you might discover your favorite new band in the process! Here's the full lineup:

Schoolboy Q - Man of the Year - 113 BPM

Tune-Yards - Water Fountain - 111 BPM

Danny Brown & Purity Ring - 25 Bucks - 117 BPM

Grimes - Oblivion - 156 BPM

Dum Dum Girls - Rimbaud Eyes - 132 BPM

St. Vincent - Digital Witness - 105 BPM

The Field - They Won't See Me - 120 BPM

Pusha T & Kendrick Lamar - Nosetalgia - 81 BPM

Neneh Cherry & Robyn - Out of the Black - 123 BPM

Beck - Blue Moon - 120 BPM

The day when I received the device, I load all my favorites music in it, This device built-in 8GB after I load 500 songs, there are still over 6GB memory left, I will load other lovely songs in future when I collect more. I often use this music player in two way, one is that I can plug the earphone into the earphone jack, listen to music by earphone, The other way is very cool that I strongly recommend to all of you, if your car has audio port, you could connect the music player with your car by audio cable, after that you could enjoy your favorites songs on your car.Check the products here: http://boseworkout.com
