Heading to Arizona this weekend for Feis in the Desert or Louisiana for Feis New Orleans? How about Cancun, Mexico for Inishfree Feis Cancun? Or Connecticut for the Pender Keady Academy Feis or New York for Feis na Blian Nua?

No matter your competitive destination this weekend, we want to share four tunes you should add to your own playlist before lacing up and taking the stage. Best of luck to all competitors. And be sure to come back here and share your results!

“Under Pressure” – David Bowie and Queen
Listening to this on the way to competition will help you realize, you’re not the only one feeling the nerves. Phew!

“Happy” – Fischerspooner
This tune will just simply make you happy. Who wouldn’t want that?!
