Today marks the first day of summer and with it comes the onslaught of summer parties and excitement over the bright days ahead. To celebrate, Slacker has launched a treasure trove of new stations dedicated to the pool parties, daytime dance parties, BBQ campouts, and all things that make this season the happiest of them all.
Take a look at the Summer of Slacker and get ready to have what is bound to be a fantastic sunny season.
Pop Pool Party
From reigning queens of the “summer song” like Katy Perry to newcomers like Icona Pop, all of the latest and greatest summer pop jams live on Pop Pool Party. Your Slacker curators have taken the hard work out of creating a playlist for your summer parties; this is the perfect soundtrack to pool parties with your closest friends. Listen here.
Your Slacker curators have put together a station full of the best country hits to provide the soundtrack for an all-American summer. Camping, BBQs, fireworks, and watching the sunset from the back of a pickup truck. On Country Summer you’ll hear upbeat summer hits from artists like Florida Georgia Line, Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert (pictured), and more!
Rock n’ Roll BBQ
There’s nothing more American than a summertime BBQ with family, friends, food, and great music. Fire up your summer with classic tracks from AC/DC, Kid Rock, Bruce Springsteen, Guns N’ Roses, Van Halen, and more. Listen to Rock n’ Roll BBQ here.
The latest addition to the Summer of Slacker is YOLO Radio. Your Slacker curators have selected the greatest hip hop party jams; perfect for a weekend in Vegas or a pool party in your neighborhood.

You know the vibe: boutique hotels from New York to San Francisco with rooftop pools staffed by impossibly attractive people. A perfect place to relax, have a cocktail, and spend a summer weekend living like a celebrity. This is the soundtrack to Hotel Poolside: featuring swanky exotica, modern chill-out, and sophisticated electronica – where all songs set an extravagant and luxurious mood.
In the late 70s and early 80s, some of the most accomplished songwriters in music set sail on a voyage that produced some of the smoothest songs of all time. Their nautical explorations resulted in classic tracks like Christopher Cross’ “Sailing,” the Doobie Brothers’ “What a Fool Believes,” and everything Hall and Oates ever wrote. Hear the smoothest Yacht Rock hits here.
Daytime Dance – Nu Disco

With sunny nu-disco sounds from Classixx, Poolside, Du Tonc and Gigamesh, plus groovy deep house from Breach, Disclosure and Justin Martin, Daytime Dance has an upbeat rhythm while still keeping things cool.
