As a Seattlelite, one way to know Summer is on its way out is the arrival of Bumbershoot. A 3-day music festival that has continuously found its way to evolve and keep the locals happy is in its 46th year.
Though it’s a bit bittersweet not to see a bunch of the homies performing this year (as in previous years), the lineup they’ve put together for urban music lovers like myself is INCREDIBLE. Peep them all below.
Big Sean – He dropped one hell of a project this year with “I Decided” and hasn’t stopped rising. He’s def one of my absolute favs!
Daniel Caesar – OMG, this guys voice is HEAVENLY! Just listen to his collab w/ Kali Uchi’s and see why the internet has fallen in love with this soulful R&B act.
Amine – Reppin for the NW (Portland), Amine may not be a recognized name yet, but I guarantee you know his hit single “Caroline”. He’s filthy and I definitely fuck w/ what he has going on!
E-40 – What do I really need to say about this West Coast Legend? You know he’s gonna keep it HYPHY fosho.
Lil Yachty – Believe it or not, but I used to not really like Lil Yachty. Well, technically I still don’t like his music, but him as a person, LOVE! I’m excited to see how he is live.
Leikeli47 – A new name to most, this girl is FIRE. Her beat selection is always dope and her flows always clean. Definitely check this ski mask rockin lady out!
Vince Staples – Another dope album released this year with “Big Fish Theory”, Vince is young, smart and always bring mad energy to the stage.
Solange – IT’S FREAKIN SOLANGE!
Gucci Mane – It’s been a beautiful thing to watch Gucci grow into the Pop star he is today. Maybe he’ll bring his new wifey Keyshia Kaoir to the stage too?!
