That’s a pretty diverse lineup so far….lots of hip-hop, some decent indie pop and rock, and some artists that I won’t even bother to categorize. It’ll be interesting to see what the next round of artists additions adds to the table.

Any PacNW folks want to chimie in as to how this compares to year’s past?

Any hardcore Bumbershoot fans?
