For those in the Seattle area, Bumbershoot festival is one of the most accessible large-scale events there is. I made the trip in under 30-minutes and found free parking both days. Uber, Lyft, and other forms of public transportation clear up the roads for drivers and severely cuts down on festival traffic. Inside the festival hordes of humans are soaking up the smoke-free sunshine. The city is active as summer transitions to fall, and Bumbershoot takes advantage of everyone’s three-day Labor Day weekend. Here’s what you missed at Bumbershoot 2018.
The Stars Were Out
Bumbershoot put together one of its best lineups to date. It featured legends from our youths, up and coming superstars, and everything in between. Highlights of the festival included T-Pain, who played the soundtrack of my high school years. Marian Hill and Chromeo scorching the Fisher Green stage. Black Pistol Fire electrifying the Mural Amiptheatre, Cold War Kids rocking their hits, and Travis Thompson proving why he’s one of Seattle’s brightest young spitters. Also at the festival was J. Cole, Sza, and Portugal the Man. These larger acts threw down in Memorial Stadium. This was my first time in a stadium that I’ve referenced in several Seattle hip-hop songs. It’s still difficult to get inside when there is a line, which takes away from the festival feel a bit. However, once inside it’s a major upgrade from the confinements of Key Arena. You can move between the stadium seating and the floor without hesitation.
Food & Vibes
Supplementing the huge musical performances were great weather, food, and vibes. In between sets people were grabbing food from the B-Eats food court, featuring some of the cities top eateries like Bok a Bok, Radiator Whiskey, Southpaw Pizza and Little Fish. The best deal on the menu was Bok’s 10 piece wing for $11. Each order came with three different sauces. This was the go-to meal for day two and three. Bai was gracious enough to supply the entire festival with sugar-free energy drinks for the entire weekend. Bai makes delicious beverages and sipping on these saved me a bunch of money I normally would have spent.
