Somewhere… in the hustle and bustle of life, we completely forgot to share the 2016 lineup! We’re posting it now because this is what we’ve been doing for years and… due diligence.
BIG news. Starbucks is opening a 20,000 square-foot location in New York in 2018. Just wrap your head around that for a second. This will be the largest location out of all their stores – even out of the gazillion locations in Seattle and that’s where they are originally from. I just went to New York a few weeks ago for the first time and I remember Mandi telling me that New York just isn’t known for its coffee. I had a latte at Donut Plant that I liked, but for some reason just like I thought Seattle was the hub for coffee, I thought New York would be the same. I even got a drink at Starbucks when I was there and it was kind of awful and made me miss the one I go to regularly in the Bay Area. Hopefully, this new location won’t disappoint though. This location will be the second version of the Roastery located in Capitol Hill and will essentially be the East Coast version of it.
By the way, if you haven’t stop by for a visit, it is stunning. You don’t need to spend too much time there, but there’s a lot to see and it’s one of the fancier locations in the entire Seattle area. The New York City Roastery will live in a new building that is currently in construction in Chelsea.
How exciting is this lineup?! LIONEL RICHIE AMIRITE?!
Okay, but actually this is probably one of the first lineups from Outside Lands since I’ve been living here that I’m a little bit excited about. I haven’t quite made up my mind just yet, but Snakehips Miguel, Miike Snow, Kehlani, and Years & Years could change my mind. Actually – who are we kidding – Kehlani is ENOUGH for me to make me want to go.
Every year Coachella’s the first to come out with their lineup and everyone loses their minds over it, but really – the best lineup I feel like always comes from Lollapalooza. This is just phenomenal.
From the creators of Coachella…
The festival will take place in the same location as Governor’s Ball and my guess is that Governor’s Ball organizers aren’t happy about it.
Whee!! This looks fun!!
This lineup poster is really deceiving because Miguel and Sufjan Stevens are near the bottom when they should clearly be a little closer to the top. Turns out, it’s just in alphabetical order. Way to step outside of the box this year and do what no other music festival lineups ever do.
The initial lineup was just released yesterday, but as we all know – it only gets better as time goes on when it comes to CHBP. As always, I’m especially proud of the Pacific Northwest presence – Odesza, STRFKR, The Cave Singers. Capitol Hill Block Party is a festival that means so much to me and was a huge part of my upbringing in music. It’s hard to believe how many years I’ve been away from it now – just doesn’t seem normal, you know? And it’s not like I have a festival here in the Bay Area that I can call home quite yet. :(
Aw sad feels.
We get excited about every music festival, basically.
Wow! Pretty impressed with that top lineup right there. Yeasayer, we’ve missed youuuuuu!
Out of all of the music festival lineups that were released this week, Governor’s Ball is the one that I’m the most excited about… but probably the one I’ll be least likely to attend only because I don’t think I’ll have a chance to go to New York twice this year! There’s been rumors that this is actually the best Governor’s Ball lineup that anyone has ever seen and I’m not arguing that. At first sight, I was in shock at how amazing these acts are and how lucky these attendees will be to get to see these people LIVE! Who am I most excited about? Oh so many…
Wow even looking at this lineup again, there were a few people that I realized I didn’t even see the first time around!
