Bumbershoot starts at 1:30, which gives you exactly two hours to plan out your day there. Our Bumbershoot calendar has everything you need to do that—showtimes, biographies for every single artist, and recommendations from our critics. Plus, it's mobile-friendly, so you can refer back to it throughout the day.
To give you a taste of what you'll find on the calendar, here are a few of of our top picks for today.

WORDS & IDEAS
Ijeoma Oluo: Why This Why That Why Now
"A prominent, lucid, and galvanic voice on the urgent subject of social justice." - Sean Nelson
The Onion's A.V. Club
"Though The Onion has achieved a certain cultural omnipresence for its (unbelievably consistent) headline gage, their arts writing in the not-entirely-straight-faced-but-properly-journalistic A.V. Club section has been doing work that’s just as impressive for almost as long." - Sean Nelson
