We’ve heard about a few delicious and entertaining ways to spend this upcoming, sun-kissed weekend (have you seen that forecast?), and we thought we’d share the goodness with you!
Planning for a full season of music at the zoo and beyond.
Recently there have been plenty of roster unveilings for exciting events ranging from the Seattle International Film Festival (taking place May 18 to June 11, tickets on sale now) to Timber! Outdoor Music Festival (which returns July 12 through 14). Earlier this week, Bumbershoot also revealed its anticipated lineup; 3-day passes go on sale Friday, May 4, at noon.
A sensational Swede returns this August—and other can’t-miss shows.
Daniel Norgren—an otherworldly “Swede with soul”—is returning to the U.S. this summer, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. This incredible talent will be back at Pickathon in early August (a dream come true), before heading up to Ballard’s Tractor for two shows (with Phil Cook) on August 7 and 8. Tickets for both performances go on sale today at 10 a.m.; they sold out last year, so we recommend jumping onboard ASAP!
It’s the Emerald City’s time to shine on the big screen.
The 2012 Seattle International Film Festival is in full swing and the lineup could be the best yet. So how do you choose? We’re getting you started with some SIFF films set right here in Seattle.
