The three stylistic pillars of Capitol Hill Block Party are heady rock, danceable electronic tunes, and fresh hip hop. For CHBP 2014 (July 25–27), A$AP Rocky, Spoon, and Chromeo both fit and top the bill. A$AP Rocky brings his relentlessly aggressive rapping, Spoon provides air tight indie rock, and Chromeo offers up dance-ready electrofunk. Joining those three are uber energetic rock duo Matt and Kim, the ambient swriling rock of the War on Drugs, Rocky's A$AP Mob compadre A$AP Ferg, and heart-shattering singer-songwriter Angel Olsen. The lineup also boasts some rising Seattle acts including Odeza, Sol, and Beat Connection. The lineup will be further fleshed out as summer nears.
Three-day passes are on sale now for a the discounted price of $99 (normally $125) for a limited time at capitolhillblockparty.com. VIP packages are available for $250. Advanced single day tickets will go on sale at a later date for $50.
