The time has come for the 43rd annual Bumbershoot Festival, when the best of music and art hike up to the Pacific Northwest for a few days of fun in the…clouds, we assume. Don’t worry, the great music will cut through the northwestern gloom. Headlining the fest this year are local heroes Death Cab For Cutie playing their album Transatlanticism, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Heart, and Grammy-winning rock band fun.
Also appearing at Bumbershoot this year are Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience, The Robert Glasper Experiment, Vintage Trouble, Eric Burdon, The Breeders, The Zombies, Bob Mould, The Duke Robillard Band, MGMT, Trampled By Turtles, Deerhunter, Justin Townes Earle, Delta Rae, Ivan & Alyosha, Superchunk, The Sheepdogs, and Kopecky Family Band. There’s going to be a lot of music to see.
Bumbershoot Festival takes place at the Seattle Center in Seattle, WA from August 31st to September 2nd. For more information and to get tickets, visit the Bumbershoot website.
