Bumbershoot 2016 Lineup Announced: Headliners Include Death Cab for Cutie, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Kygo

The lineup was announced tonight at a free party at the Showbox Market. Bumbershoot tickets go on sale Friday at 10! The festival will be held Friday through Sunday of Labor Day Weekend instead of Saturday through Monday in past years. Local favorites Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Death Cab for Cutie will headline the weekend. There is a fair bit of EDM this year: Kygo, Pretty Lights, DJ Snake, Porter Robinson, Zed’s Dead, and Zhu.

Lesser known bands you should check out include Tame Impala, Melanie Martinez, St. Lucia, and Seattle local Maiah Manser. Below, I picked out some music videos I like and recommend. 128 days until Bumbershoot!
