Some legendary acts are coming to Seattle this summer for Bumbershoot Festival's 50th anniversary.

Other notable performers include Phantogram, Screaming Females, Algernon Cadwallader, Debby Friday, A-Trak, Durand Jones, Matt and Kim, Benny the Butcher, Destroy Boys, The Dandy Warhols, Reignwolf, The Black Tones, Domi & JD Beck, and Valerie June.
“We are thrilled to partner with The UC Theatre’s Concert Career Pathways to guide our workforce development program,” Third Stone’s Executive Director James Miles shared. “Together, we will expand the pipeline and close the gap that addresses the barriers of entry into a career in the live music industry here in Seattle... When you buy a ticket to Bumbershoot, or make a donation to Third Stone, you are supporting more than just the music and arts festival on Labor Day weekend. We believe that in 10 years, Bumbershoot will be staffed and run by the program graduates. This is how we and other institutions activate social change and how Bumbershoot becomes much more than a music festival.”
