Bumbershoot Ticket Prices Go Up Tomorrow

How much are you willing to pay to see Skrillex, Gotye, Tony Bennett, M83…

By Laura Dannen July 16, 2012

Crazy Aussie Gotye coheadlines opening night of Bumbershoot 2012.

Mornin’. Just a friendly reminder that Bumbershoot ticket prices go up tomorrow: from $40 to $55 for single-day passes and $110 to $165 for a three-day pass. I’m still convinced the best deal is the $45 any-day pass (soon to be $55), which allows all us noncommittal Seattleites to decide at the last minute if we want to see Gotye and AWOLNATION that Saturday OR get a little soul from Tony Bennett and Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings on Sunday OR do a dubstep Monday with Skrillex, M83, and Passion Pit.

Personally, I’ll probably go Monday: That’s when Jeopardy legend Ken Jennings will lead a trivia session, comedian Fred Armisen (of SNL and Portlandia ) will do…something on stage, and a few of my favorite local bands (Hey Marseilles, Star Anna and the Laughing Dogs, Seapony, Reignwolf) will play earlier in the day.

Tickets are on sale now at bumbershoot.org. Here’s a more complete lineup for the three-day music and arts festival.

Sept 1–3, $40–$475, Seattle Center
