A hometown hit of international proportions offers top headliners at low prices.
– In Short
The biggest music festival on the West Coast is surprisingly affordable, considering the talent involved. This nonstop showcase of legendary artists and rising stars unfolds in more than 30 different indoor and outdoor venues, stages and galleries in Seattle Center's 74-acre meadow. Shake your booty to a favorite local band, hear poets drop free verse or check out animated film shorts. Though Bumbershoot has a national reputation, its heart and soul remain distinctly Seattle.
The Independant Film Festival of music – It's obvious the people who dog bumbershoot are ignorant. Bumbershoot is about experiencing non-mainstream artists of ever venue. Bumbershoot is the musical equivalent of Seattle's Independant Flim Festival. There's hardly any other event that offers literally ever kind of musical experience in one weekend. If you're looking for a mainstream event, you should look up Summerjam and Endfest (which put Lalapalooza out of business I might ad).
Sucky – If this is the west coast's biggest music fest, than shame on us. San Diego's Street Scene is so much better (and bigger) than Bumbershoot. I think Bumbershoot needs to get better bands, better food, and open up those beer gardens, come on! Waste of money and I will never go again.
