Tada! Bumbershoot 2012 Best Bets

One of our favorite Seattle music fests each year is the illustrious Bumbershoot, held in the heart of the city at Seattle Center. Though the festival has undergone some changes in the past couple years, including a revamped layout and a focus on more local bands instead of the Billboard Top 10, we think this year’s event is going to make for one wonderful Labor Day weekend. Below is a schedule of our top picks for each day of the long weekend. We’ll also be following up with our top 3 acts for each day. If you spot us in the crowd or photo pit, please be sure to say hello!
