Tickets are on sale now for this year’s Bumbershoot festival at Seattle Center!
The Bumbershoot Arts and Music Festival is one of Seattle’s most iconic events. After two-year hiatus, Bumbershoot returns this September for its 50th anniversary. It was established in 1971. Since then it has showcased local artists and brought the community together to celebrate Seattle’s music, art, food, technology, and culture.
This year, Bumbershoot is under new leadership by producer New Rising Sun: a coalition of Seattle-based arts, entertainment, and cultural leaders. We’re excited to see what improvements and fresh perspectives they bring to Bumbershoot.
Read on for all the details about this year’s Bumbershoot lineup, tickets and more!
When is this year’s Bumbershoot?
Bumbershoot 2023 is taking place during Labor Day Weekend on September 2-3. Tickets are on sale now.
Where will it take place?
You’ll find the Bumbershoot Festival at its traditional home in the heart of Seattle: the 74-acre Seattle Center (right under the iconic Space Needle). Although you can pay to use Seattle Center’s parking garages, it’s very easy to get there via public transportation, biking, or ride shares.
What are the ticket prices?
Right now, early bird pricing for a single-day ticket is $50. Two-day tickets are already sold out at the early bird pricing tier, but you can still purchase two-day general admission for $110 plus service fees. Children under the age of 10 are admitted free (restrictions: no infants and only two free children’s tickets with each order). No pets allowed.
What sort of events and activities can I expect this year?
As implied by its full name, Bumbershoot Arts and Music Festival, this two-day event is more than your typical music fest. There will be drag performances, film, wrestling, augmented reality, vintage clothing, a tattoo runway, makeup artists, nail art, pole dancing, roller skating, tarot readings, and more! You can also expect large-scale installations, food, and immersive experiences.
