It’s big, it’s a great way to spend Labor day Weekend — either the entire weekend, or just a day — and now we know who’s going to be here for Bumbershoot 2015 — the festival’s 45th season, September 5, 6 and 7 at Seattle Center.
Hozier, Ellie Goulding, Fitz & The Tantrums, Cake, The Weekend, Neko Case, Ben Harper, and dozens and dozens more artists will appear on multiple stages and this year they’re going to try and settle the Memorial Stadium vs. Key Arena debate by featuring two main stages — that’s right, they’re using both venues.
Here’s the day-by-day rundown:
The tickets are on sale now; a 3-day pass starts at $149.50 plus fees and you can spend more for VIP access and other perks. And if $149.50 seems like a lot, keep in mind that you could see more than 100 artists if you really work it, which comes out to a buck and a half per show — not bad, and a really cheap way to discover a lot of new music in addition to seeing the artists you know and love.
Here’s the link for tickets, and here’s a wacky retro video to get you psyched for this year’s festival:
