The easiest way to set the mood for your 4th of July party is to fill it with the right music. I created my 4th of July Music Playlist on Spotify, and it’s ready to go for our party this week. I like to mix it all in the same music playlist – we have three generations and as always, a few nationalities participating to our party, so my party music mixes rarely follow one music genre. I split my playlist in a few sections to give your 4th of July music playlist a good start, whether your party consists of champagne and chillax dance moves on the summer house, or beer and BBQ on the backyard, or just a few glasses of wine with friends.
