    Line up is pretty pathetic…I have seen the line up for festivals across the US…Seattle should be embarrassed. Same old crap of nothing. Every since the new people took over the festival a few years ago…It has gotten worse. Every year.

    If anyone is disappointed with the lineup then stay home…..Bumbershoot offers so much plus little surprises & it’s in the Emerald City. I’m completely stoked and I get to share this experience with my son. Art, music, the Starbucks lounge – hells yea!!!
