Sounds of Summer: 7 mixes to soundtrack your favorite outdoor activities

As the great Mungo Jerry once said, “In the summertime when the weather is high. You can stretch right up and touch the sky.” We’d like to add that you can also relax by a campfire, chill by the pool, feed your friends at a backyard BBQ, explore a new tropical location or set sail on the ocean, when the weather is high.

This summer, you focus on the fun, and we’ll take care of the soundtrack. SiriusXM is your one-stop-shop for the Sounds of Summer, which you can access anytime on the app or web player.

Embark on your next sonic adventure!
