Save your sunscreen: The Bumbershoot mainstage is in KeyArena this year.

Bumbershoot has been releasing its schedule slowly, giving us a band a day throughout May. What a tease. Today, finally, they’ve revealed their full hand for the annual Labor Day weekend festival at Seattle Center.

Shabazz Palaces! Broken Social Scene! Hall and Oates! While the marquee isn’t packed to the gills with big names—last year’s acts included Weezer, Mary J. Blidge, and Bob Dylan—it’s still a solid group of artists.
