13 Spotify Playlists To See You Through Summer


The right playlist can turn a good day into a great one. Whether you’re hosting or just hanging out, these 13 summery options on Spotify cover all music tastes…

For Feel-Good Tunes

Summer Stories by Mr Porter

Mr Porter doesn’t just curate great menswear edits. The brand has nearly 100 playlists on Spotify, including this new edit of feel-good tunes by the likes of disco group First Choice, Motown star Gladys Knight and Afrobeat sensation Asake. Perfect for al fresco dinner parties and drinks with the boys. 

For Beach Club Vibes

Scorpios by Soho House

Scorpios is where the England football team and other A-listers hang out when in Mykonos. The Soho House-owned spot has created this playlist to transport you to the beach club with its impressive roster of international DJs. Expect chilled Mediterranean beats and deep house remixes.

For Home-Grown Bangers

F1’s Best of British

F1’s summer playlist is one of the best on this list. Put together by its resident DJs, it celebrates the best British music to hit the airwaves in the last year. Think Jungle, Tom Grennan, Dave and Foals.

For Festival Headliners

Glastonbury 2023 by Glasto Fest Feed

Someone has made a handy playlist featuring every single artist who appeared at Glasto last month – from Fatboy Slim to Fred Again. Among the 900 songs here, you’ll also find standouts from Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters.

For An All-Nighter

Feel my Bicep by Bicep

Bicep are the Irish electronic duo behind cult songs like ‘Glue’ and ‘Atlas’. As well as playing to sold-out crowds on the festival circuit, they somehow manage to regularly update their own playlists. This one features songs they’ve mixed at their own gigs by Aphex Twin, Earlham Mystics, Lost in City and Yraki.

For High-Brow Hits

Barack Obama’s Summer Playlist 2023

Put together by the ex-president himself, this playlist is a mix of old and new, household names and emerging artists. Look out for tracks by Jorja Smith, Al Green, Miguel, Rosalía and Tems.

For House & Electronica

R&S – Office Favourites

R&S Records is a Belgian label run by couple Renaat Vandepapeliere and Sabine Maes. Their playlist dives into heavier electronica, house and trance offerings from Richard Fearless or V, interspersed with expansive soundscapes from Darkstar, Nautic and Axel Boman.

For A Bit Of Everything

Humanrace by Pharrell Williams

Modern renaissance man Pharrell Williams has his finger on the pulse on all things fashion, culture and, of course, music. There’s a selection of playlists on Spotify curated by the man himself, including this one featuring hip hop, rap and R’n’B from his celeb pals like Tyler, The Creator, Pusha T, Jay-Z and Kaytranada. 

For Just Lounging Around

Summer Call by Sandro Paris

Sandro delivers stylish menswear season after season. Its summer playlist is short but sweet, featuring 20 of the best tracks played in its stores around the world – including songs from smaller international artists like Lola La Lann, Blue Toucan and Popa.

For Cool Alt Rock

No.1 Endless Summer by Sporty & Rich

Street and leisurewear brand Sporty & Rich has dropped another great playlist. This one features a range of alternative, indie and alt-rock songs by Sufjan Stevens, Paradis, Metronomy and Mild High Club.

For The Sounds Of Ibiza

Defected Ibiza 2023

Channelling balmy nights out at Café del Mar, Nassau Beach Club and Hotel Costes, this playlist has endless summer written all over it.

For Easy Listening

Songs for the Summer by Ralph Lauren

If you need a playlist you can plug in and put on shuffle, Ralph Lauren’s edit has a selection of crowd-pleasing hits by Haim, Nat King Cole and Estelle, mixed in with lesser-known songs by the likes of folk singer Molly Lewis and synth kid George Moir.

For Road Trips

July 2023 by The Row

The Row doesn’t just make timeless menswear, the brand has a creative team behind its Spotify account, with new playlists added every month. July 2023 has the tracks you need for a long road trip – think Otis Redding, Bob Dylan and Van Morrison.
