Today, Bumbershoot announced the lineup for its 47th annual festival, which happens September 1-3 at Seattle Center. It's a familiar mix of very popular acts from hiphop (Vince Staples, Gucci Mane, the Roots, Big Sean, E-40, Die Antwoord), pop (Solange, Lorde, Haim), rock (Weezer, Spoon, White Reaper, Conor Oberst), and electronic genres (ODESZA, Flume, Dillon Francis), with an emphasis on youthful and up-and-coming performers, and strong local representation (Porter Ray, Tacocat, Stas Thee Boss, Crater, Spider Ferns, Smokey Brights, Dude York). My personal can't-miss sets are Chicano Batman (suave Latin soul and funk), Moon Duo (driving, droning Suicide-meets-Hawkwind hypnosis), and garage-psych units Deap Vally and Froth. Passes go on sale 10 am PST this Fri, April 28. Check out the complete lineup and all the other details after the jump.
