Bumbershoot, Seattle's biggest music and arts festival, begins today and will continue through the end of Sunday, September 4. If you haven't heard already, we have a huge guide to every aspect of Bumbershoot on our Things To Do calendar, including showtimes and critics' picks. But, if you just want an easy way to find out when your favorite performers are playing or what's coming up next at a certain stage, BumberBot will be your best friend during the festival.
A collaboration with Microsoft, BumberBot is a Facebook messenger chat bot that will answer questions you have about the festival. All you have to do is send us a direct message through The Stranger's Facebook page, and BumberBot will start chatting with you. Really, it's that easy!
