Have you been following Bumbershoot on Facebook? They’re rolling out this year’s music lineup one band a day in May, until the full lineup announcement on June 1. Here’s the latest:
Daryl Hall and John Oates
Minus the Bear
Broken Social Scene
The Lonely Forest
Fitz and the Tantrums
Ray LaMontagne and the Pariah Dogs
Which band are you the most excited about? Personally, I’ve been waiting for another Ray LaMontagne appearance since I missed his Marymoor Park set last year. Supergroup Broken Social Scene is always an incredible show, too. A lot of these acts are Seattle regulars, but Wiz Khalifa? He’s someone you don’t see at Chop Suey every weekend.
Early-bird tickets are on sale now; become a Bumbershoot member (it’s free) and get access to $75 three-day passes and $29 any-day tickets. That means you could buy one ticket and use it Saturday, Sunday, or Monday of the Labor Day weekend fest. Once those sell out, three-day passes go up to $90, and $35 single-day tickets go on sale when the lineup is announced. Check back next Wednesday for another Bumbershoot update.
Bumbershoot is a three-day music and arts festival that runs from Sept 3–5 at Seattle Center. For more info, visit bumbershoot.org.
