Bumbershoot 2014 Lineup Revealed
Seattle’s annual Bumbershoot music festival has just announced its 2014 lineup, and it’s stacked with killer names. With so many festivals these days, the list of topnotch artists performing is usually the make-or-break thing that helps fans decide if ticket and trip costs are worth the time and money.
The lineup is headed by Wu-Tang Clan, who we’re hoping will perform some songs from their new million-dollar album (because we sure can’t afford the damn thing), the Replacements, the Afghan Whigs (also recently reunited), Elvis Costello and Foster the People. Real Estate, Danny Brown and Mac DeMarco will also be there.
Here’s a breakdown of the day-by-day schedule of the three-day event, which takes place at the Seattle Center over Labor Day weekend:
