Tony Bennett is set to class up Bumbershoot this September.

After many bemoaned Bumbershoot’s lineup last year, the announcement of 2012’s roster should win the doubters back. The daily headliners are Jane’s Addiction, Tony Bennett, and Skrillex. Eclectic to say the least. And that’s only the start. M83, M. Ward, Mac Miller, Mudhoney (so many Ms), Passion Pit, Big Sean, The Helio Sequence, and a host of other top acts round out the bill. And that’s not even getting down to Seattle Met faves like Damien Jurado, Eighteen Individual Eyes, and Deep Sea Diver. Bumbershoot 2012 looks like it’s primed to go head-to-head with Dave Matthews Band at the Gorge this Labor Day.
