Bumbershoot 2007

by -

Most of the music world began to recognize Seattle as a hot spot in the ‘90’s when Nirvana drew attention to the area, but the Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival had been going on there long before Cobain got the media’s attention. After more than 35 years of bringing live music to the Seattle stage, Bumbershoot has worked out the kinks, as recognized by the more-than-150,000 fans who head to the 75 acre music space each year to hear favorite bands and see what’s new in Seattle.

The 2007 Bumbershoot Festival takes place September 1 – 3. World Events Guide shows that Kanye West will be this year’s headliner. Kanye was the 2006 headliner as well; see last year’s complete line-up for hints as to who might play this year. Stay on top of updates by signing up as part of the Bumbershoot MySpace Group.

Who’s going?

    I’d be hesitant to believe that Kanye would be headlining two years in a row. Oftentimes, someone sees a year old press release from a fest and since it is dated 2006, they think it’s new and publishes it as the following year. I’ve seen this happen many times before. I’ve been to Bumbershoot every year for the past 11 or 12 years, and I really doubt they’d be recycling headliners back-to-back. I could be wrong of course…

    You know, I tend to agree, although reports online are saying that it’s Kanye again … the official “for sure” line-up will be available on the Bumbershoot website on July 11th.

    How was Kanye’s performance at last year’s Bumbershoot?

    I only ended up watching 10 or so minutes of his set after watching part of Great Big Sea and Dumpstaphunk. Kanye isn’t really my thing, but I had to say I saw him perform, and it’s clear he’s an entertainer through and through.
