When: September 2nd-4th
Where: Seattle, Washington
Why Go: Long before music festivals became a regular summer ritual in the U.S., there was Bumbershoot. The Seattle Center, the sprawling public space located just north of downtown built for the 1962 World's Fair, has hosted a music festival in some form or another for more than 40 years. Seattle has grown alongside Bumbershoot, allowing festivalgoers to enjoy an eclectic and star-packed array of performers in the shadow of the Space Needle.
Must-See Acts: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Death Cab for Cutie, Kygo, Tame Impala, Halsey, DJ Snake, Bryson Tiller, Fetty Wap, Kamasi Washington, Margo Price, Explosions in the Sky
