Aside from a bonkers and unexpected rainstorm on Saturday evening, this year's Bumbershoot fest didn't require much use of the collapsable canopy from which it gets its name. The musical acts were very much on point, with highlights including all three days of dueling local DJs at the Silent Disco hosted at EMP, the Weeknd's headlining set on Saturday night, Peaches slaying the Key Arena, and Ellie Goulding closing out the festival on the mainstage.
