Ready or not, here it comes! Bumbershoot 2017 dates have been announced and early bird passes are now on sale at Bumbershoot’s website. Get em’ while they’re hot (and pretty reasonably priced for a three-day festival!) It all goes down Friday through Sunday of Labor Day Weekend.
Early bird 3 day passes are available now at the following prices, before fees: GA $150, VIP $375, Emerald $675. Single-day tickets in 2016 at the door were $150, so if you’re even a little interested a 3-day pass is your best bet!
At this point, we don’t know much about what Bumbershoot 2017 will have in store for us. But if the lineups of the last few years are any indication, we have faith that this will be another impressive year as far as talent goes. We know that Bumbershoot 2016 was not without its flaws, but we still managed to have a killer weekend.
Despite the line at Key Arena, we still got in to see the major acts we wanted to see without waiting more than 20 minutes at any point. We were pleased with the eclectic lineup that let us see Death Cab for Cutie, Billy Idol, and Porter Robinson, all in the same hour. And when you weren’t dead-set on any one artist, there was plenty to do as you wandered around Seattle Center.
Sub Pop Records had an art installation that offered a nice break from all the rushing from stage to stage. There was a ton of great food, some free swag, including all the Hi-Chews your heart could handle! If you needed a more solo experience, the Silent Disco was the perfect balance. It was a safe haven where you could go listen to one of two DJs you chose, close your eyes, and just dance with your friends, while having your own personal experience.
What: Bumbershoot 2017
