Melbourne Cup Playlist

Here’s Our Melbourne Cup Playlist To Prepare You For Every Stage Of The Day

Melbourne Cup Day is one of the rowdiest Aussie traditions we’ve got. Australian culture really is something.

Now for everyone who is on board with MCD, it’s time to get PUMPED for the festivities. You have such an eventful day just around the corner that will inevitably play out just about the same way as it always does…

You start the day more put together then you’re usually ever looking (hello weird ass headpieces it is your time to shine), and you finish the day more fallen apart than is probably good for you (2 lit 2 quit).

To get around some Melbourne Cup Day HYPE, we’ve put together this playlist of tunes that chronicle every stage of your action-packed day to really enhance your experience. It’s a wild ride so hold on to your dranks #keen. Scroll to the bottom to stream the full playlist via Spotify.

We will kick off with everyone’s favourite Melbourne Cup banger/favourite banger for any and everyday..
