For the 46th year, Bumbershoot, Seattle's biggest music and arts festival, will take over Seattle Center during Labor Day weekend. To prepare yourself for the madness, find the complete schedule for all three days of the festival, links to listen to music from every artist, a map of the Bumbershoot grounds, and critics' picks on our complete Bumbershoot calendar. Plus, if you want to listen to the music our critics recommend, we've even made Spotify playlists for you (which are split up into pop/rock/punk/country and hiphop/rap/R&B/soul/jazz) with all of their favorite artists.
Need even more recommendations? We've got you covered, with lists of 10 local artists to check out, 10 things to take a chance on, Bumbershoot performer picks, and recommended events for stoners.
But wait, there's more: If all of this information is too overwhelming to read and you'd rather have a robot guide you through it, you're in luck! For the first time ever, if you send us a direct message through The Stranger's Facebook page, our automated BumberBot will respond with information about where and when to see your favorite performers.
It's never been easier to enjoy Bumbershoot—so go have the best Labor Day weekend of your life.
