Bumbershoot coverage begins August 29
Seattle Gay News will cover all three days of the 2008 Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival during Labor Day weekend. The three-day event runs Saturday through Monday, August 30 through September, 1 at Seattle Center.
For a list of must-see acts to check out this year, including Beck and hometown favorites Death Cab for Cutie (pictured), grab a copy of this week's Seattle Gay News or visit www.sgn.org and click on the Arts & Entertainment section from the main page.
Our blog coverage of Bumbershoot, referred to in previous years as Bumber-blog (pickpocketed by a local daily newspaper - and we don't want trouble), starts Friday night with a glance at Saturday's action.
Throughout the weekend, we expect to catch up with a few of the performing artists and provide snippets of the festival to you right here in this blog. Plus, we're invited to select VIP performances by various artists, so we'll have mini wrap-ups of those right here as well. For a complete list of acts and daily schedules, visit www.bumbershoot.org.
Three-day passes are sold out, but single day tickets priced at $40 (adult) can be purchased at most Starbucks locations and at the main gate.
