Wow, what a fun lineup! The Flavr Blue!!
Congratulations One Reel! I always seem to get the most excited about Bumbershoot over any other festival lineup and I think it’s just cause I’ve had such strong ties with it and growing up having attended so many years. This is a very exciting lineup though and every year there is such a good mix of mainstream acts along with local acts that are going to have incredible exposure during this weekend. Unfortunately, I won’t be attending for the second year in a row, but if I did, I would not miss Saturday or Monday.
I still remember the early days of Yow Yow! and when I was a college student writing posts about Quadstock. Quadstock isn’t one of those things that defines me, but honestly, I wouldnt have minded if it was one of those things. I worked on this festival behind-the-scenes for two years and on my third year, I was running it along with my co-chair. It has been three years since I last did it and even though I’m very far removed from the Seattle University community and this organization, I still feel really proud of how far it has come and I get just as excited about the reveal of the lineup as I do for any other music festival. Beat Connection as a headliner is just downright amazing. They are well-respected within the Seattle music community and they’re going to do a great job of closing out the night. Also when I found out that SEAC was still doing the unveiling party, my heart skipped a beat because I’m so proud and thrilled that something I started is still continuing five years later!
Every year when I missed Coachella, I would look forward to streaming the sets and catching up on all of the photos via my favorite blogs. Music festival fashion isn’t new, but it hasn’t always existed either. It was probably made more widely known a few years ago and after that fast fashion brands began to design collections so that people could specifically dress for these music festivals. It’s fascinating to me, really. Anyways, like every year, I continue to really enjoy seeing the looks that celebrities and bloggers bring with them to the festival so here are just a few of my favorites!
I realize that this is only for Weekend One, but I don’t know if I’ll have it in me to do a second weekend roundup! Plus – we gotta make room for other content.

Also, I think I had the opportunity to see TV On The Radio and The Kills at CHBP a couple years ago, but great to hear that they’ll be back again.

A festival created by the organizers of Bonnaroo. Apparently, there are 40+ names that have yet to be released for the lineup, but so far so good!
Odesza! AlunaGeorge! Pillowtalk! Les Sins!
If only I weren’t going to be in San Diego for Memorial Day Weekend… (actually I’m really excited about this trip!) California has such good music festivals.
Oh em gee – space themed! We’ve been a little bit slow on the posting lately because I’m recovering from a small cold. I must be losing my edge lately because I barely recognize anyone from the last five lines of the lineup! Regardless, Sasquatch always does such a great job and people always come out of it enjoying the experience that they’ve had.
I just happen to be a girl that prefers a shower and a bed ;)
