Bumbershoot Line-Up Announced
Seattle summer may just be starting, but today we get a peek at what the end of summer will look like with the Bumbershoot line-up announcement. Last years “Decibel After Dark” Fest will continue (and this time is included in the cost of your tickets) and some new additions have been made to the Fest, including a Sub Pop sponsored stage, a new stage called the Promenade where local bands and singer-songwriters will be featured, a to be announced Metal showcase, and a North of Northwest dream, a Canadian showcase called “M is for Montreal.”
We’re still mulling over the line-up but a few names jump out. If you went crazy for Charles Bradley last year, do not miss Lee Fields and the Expressions on Sunday and we’re excited to see that the legendary Wanda Jackson will be backed by Seattle’s own Dusty 45s. And then of course, there’s the local names we love: Mudhoney, Damien Jurado, Deep Sea Diver, Bryan John Appleby, Sera Cahoone, Gold Leaves and many more. Here’s a video sharing the line-up, but you can check the full (in text) list after the jump.
