Both Capitol Hill Block Party and Bumbershoot will be releasing their partial lineup on June 1st.
Capitol Hill Block Party has transformed from a 2-day festival to a 3-day and Bumbershoot will be celebrating their 40th anniversary.
On a sad note, we say goodbye to San Diego’s Street Scene. This is a let down on all levels because a) I love San Diego b) I was planning on going back for round two this summer and c) This was one of the best shows that I have ever been to regardless of my failed attempt to get on stage w/ the god that is Gregg Gillis. I still got to watch Holy Fuck, Matt & Kim, Chromeo, and Girl Talk. Best. Night. Ever.
but wait…I’ll let you in on a little secret…
According to Rolling Stone: rumors to headline this year’s 40th Bumbershoot will be THE Bob Dylan, Weezer, Mary J. Blige, and Hole.
