The Capitol Hill Block Party Announces 2010 Lineup: !!!, Blitzen Trapper, The Dead Weather, MGMT, and more

capitolhillblockparty.com

It must be “West Coast Music Festival Lineups” week here at LMB. The Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle just announced their lineup today for the weekend of July 23-25th, 2010. It’s absolutely stunning for the price of admission. This is seemingly worth traveling for at that rate; some three-day passes are still available for $60.

In unabashedly conspicuous celebration of 14 years of independent music and culture, the Block Party has added a THIRD Day! After 13 years of being a two day festival, community support and tremendous talent opportunities initiated the addition of a 3rd day, Sunday July 25th.

Discounted: $60 three-day passes on sale Friday May 21st.
Discounted: $23 single-day tickets available on Friday June 4th.

Advance 3 Day Passes available here: www.thestranger.com/blockparty3daypass

    So… there’s about 3 bands each day I know I’d want to see, but I don’t think I want to go all three days. I’ve already seen Atmosphere, !!!, Truckasaurus, Grynch, and Blue Scholars, although I’d definitely go see Atmosphere & !!! again any day.

    Which day would you guys want to catch most if you could only do one?

      I’d probably hit Friday over any other day… :)
