3 Reasons for Dance Music Fans to Check Out Bumbershoot 2014

Festivals, much like nightclubs, struggle to maintain relevancy and staying power year after year. If you have attended a festival more than once, you’ve surely noticed changes from year to year, even if they’re minor. Founded in 1971, Bumbershoot is going into its 44th year, having undergone many changes. Bumbershoot has always brought a wide swath of talent to Seattle Center, showcasing a variety of musical acts, comedians, theater productions and other forms of entertainment. However, in an effort to find the sweet spot, the festival has, at different points, changed length, weekends, content strategies, and other methods to ensure longevity for the middle-aged festival. (At one point, believe it or not, the festival spanned 10 days!)

We are living in an age of festivals. The growth in popularity of music festivals in the U.S. and around the world provides Bumbershoot with increasingly fierce competition. For dance music fans, Bumbershoot might not appear very attractive initially. DMNW has already put together a guide to electronic artists you can find at this year’s festival. But we know it’s not just the content that makes the experience! Here are three reasons you might want to give Bumbershoot a chance, or a second chance, if it hasn’t lived up to your expectations in the past.

I have wanted to write and share it since I was a kid and I'm a lover of dance music since discovering the scene in 2010. My life motto is "If you can't find time to do it right, how are you going to find time to do it over?"
