Getting ready for Festival Season: Bumbershoot 2016 tickets on sale!

This Labor Day Weekend, Bumbershoot celebrates 46 years!

Treefort Music Festival just passed, Sasquatch is coming up at The Gorge next month, Capitol Hill Block Party just announced its lineup for July, and Bumbershoot tickets are on sale! The early bird sale is almost over, so make sure to get your tickets before prices go up! This year, the event will be held Friday through Sunday of Labor Day Weekend instead of Saturday through Monday in past years. This is an awesome shift so we will have Sunday to rest and recover before heading back to work/school on Tuesday!


Bumbershoot is one of Seattle’s largest cultural touchstones. Each year thousands of people across the country flock to Seattle to attend this acclaimed Festival, which has become one of the most unique and best-loved contemporary festivals in North America. Bumbershoot’s diverse programming includes live music, comedy, theatre, film, visual arts, dance performance, and more.

Lineup will be announced on Monday, April 25th. There will be a free announcement party at The Showbox (Market) at 7:00 pm. It is open to all ages, 21+ can drink. The lineup will be revealed via a bingo style game hosted by Jay Cox, Bumbershoot’s VIP/Special Events Coordinator. Last year featured headliners The Weeknd, Ellie Goulding, and Chance the Rapper. Every year, they always bring in big names and it never disappoints. We can’t wait to see!
