This will be the second year I get to hit up Bumbershoot with a media pass and just from the lineup it’s clear this year will be even more fun than the last. This year Bumbershoot features performances by J. Cole, Wu-Tang Clan, Big Freedia, G-Eazy, IAmSu, Jarv Dee, Sam Lachow, Fly Moon Royalty, Shaprece, and tones more!
For 44 years, Bumbershoot’s musical offerings have included everything under the sun. This year, the Festival’s Mainstage is one of those offerings, as it moves back to the open air of Memorial Stadium and plays host to an eclectic and diverse roster of nine headliners ranging from hometown folk-rock stars The Head and the Heart to rising hip hop heroes J. Cole and ScHoolboy Q, pop hitmakers Foster the People, Panic! At The Disco, and Capital Cities, long-time favorites Elvis Costello and the Imposters and Wu-Tang Clan, and reunited alt-rockers The Replacements.
Over 100 musical acts will perform at Seattle Center over Labor Day weekend, among them legendary funk-rock pioneer Bootsy Collins and “Last Soul Man” Bobby Womack.

Bumbershoot also hosts Nada Surf (making one of only two U.S. appearances this year,) alongside very rare appearances by Luscious Jackson and The Dream Syndicate.
