Veteran acts seem to be the trend at this year’s Bumbershoot music festival, as its announced that folk founder Bob Dylan, ’90s alternative rockers Weezer and Hole and R&B mainstay Mary J. Blige will be headlining the Labor Day weekend, 40th anniversary event.
Neko Case, Rise Against, The Decemberists, J. Cole, Jamie Lidell, LMFAO, Billy Bragg and Edward Sharpe (who was revealed earlier today to be heading to Outside Lands, as well) are also among the bigger names to be performing at the 74-acre Seattle Center Sept. 4-6.
Organizers have also enthusiastically mentioned “one more very special guest to be announced soon!”
