Bumbershoot, Seattle's Music & Arts Festival

Bumbershoot, Seattle’s Music & Arts Festival

Bumbershoot, Seattle’s Music & Arts Festival, has been bringing great music, art, and a happy close to summer for millions of festival-goers every Labor Day weekend since 1971.  In fact, this year, the 7 millionth patron will walk through the festival gates — might it be you?

Held in the heart of Seattle at the 74-acre Seattle Center grounds, Bumbershoot is North America’s largest urban arts festival. It offers one of the most diverse and carefully curated musical lineups in the world, plus a full slate of arts programming that includes comedy, theatre, film, literary, visual arts, and spectacle.  Venues are large and small, indoor and outdoor, with something for all ages and every taste. Not to mention all of Seattle just waiting for you to explore in your “off hours,” should you have any!

Held August 31-September 2, the 100+ bands scheduled for 2013 include hometown heroes Death Cab for Cutie (playing their seminal album Transatlanticism in its entirety), Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members Heart, Grammy-winning band fun., rising hip hop star Kendrick Lamar, legendary power-pop band The Zombies, and breakthrough EDM act BASSNECTAR.

What could be better than this?  How about WINNING two weekend Bumbershoot Platinum Passes, two tickets on Delta Air Lines, and three nights at the Hotel Vintage Park?  Enter to win our Bumbershoot Sweepstakes by July 20 on our Visit Seattle Facebook page, or click here if you’re viewing this on a mobile device.

And by the way? Kids 10 & under get in free, and there’s a whole slate of “Youngershoot” programs for them too.

May the Bumberluck be with you!
