Seattle’s big festival has revealed its lineup for the year. Taking place September 1st to the 3rd, tickets come with a price tag more reasonable (only $110 for the entire weekend) than many, admittedly larger, counterparts. Of course, this isn’t to say Bumbershoot hasn’t amassed a noteworthy list of performers.
Among the acts set to appear are M83, Jane’s Addiction, Passion Pit, Mudhoney, M. Ward, Low, The Vaselines, The Jayhawks, and (sigh) Skrillex. Even Tony Bennett is set to perform.
These acts will more or less serve as headliners, backed by an impressive supporting cast, including Why?, Yelawolf, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Ty Segall, Big Sean, Fujiya & Miyagi, Blitzen Trapper, Mac Miller, Oberhofer, and Keane. Visit the festival’s official site for tickets and the entire lineup.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
