2013 was a crazy year in Mix Music.
It was a year with the biggest MixFest ever, a Beach House concert to end all such concerts with Train, private nights with FUN., Mumford & Sons, Bon Jovi, and many others.
The last 12 months saw Lady Gaga’s shock value usurped by the haze of a former Disney Channel star twerking her way to infamy, (thanks, Miley!)
2013 had new faces like Lorde and Imagine Dragons becoming superstars. Superstars like Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, and Bruno Mars maintaining super status with strong records.
Disco made a comeback with Robin Thicke and Daft Punk, and unknowns like Passenger and A Great Big World had HUGE hits.
Alterna-pop re-emerged through Capital Cities and The Neighborhood, and alterna-folk continued to be big with artists like Mumford & Sons, the Lumineers, and Of Monsters and Men.
Even country stayed strong with mainstream hits from Carrie Underwood and Florida Georgia Line.
Mix 104.1 was lucky enough to bring many of these 2013 hit makers to Boston for FREE events, and we plan on doing even more of it in 2014!
Here is the list of the songs Mix feels rocked 2013 better than the rest!
