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 can’t-miss, low-maintenance weekend of fun, music, nature + community.

Now that 4th festivities have come and gone, it’s time to plan for our next big adventure. Timber! Outdoor Music Festival, we’re looking at you. Next weekend—July 13 through 15—a much-anticipated community gathering is calling your (and our!) names, beckoning music lovers of all ages to Carnation (just 30 miles from Seattle), where awesome summertime tunes come to a tranquil, wooded setting.

Seattle (and the entire NW) amps up for a high-volume season.

Seattelites love to rock out all year-round, but when we’re finally blessed with never-ending azure days, we crank it up even harder. This summer’s music options include the obvious gems like Capitol Hill Block Party (July 25-27) and Bumbershoot (August 30-September 1), and we’re impressed once again with these events’ lineups that continue to “wow.”
