Bumbershoot 2012 Music Lineup Announced

Bumbershoot (9/1-9/3) announced its 2012 music lineup today, featuring mainstage acts Jane's Addiction, Tony Bennett, Skrillex and more. On the regular lineup are The Vaselines, Blitzen Trapper and, of course, a few local acts, including, Damien Jurado, Sera Cahoone and THEE Satisfaction. And of course, there's also a very long list of groups to discover, if you haven't heard them yet. See the full list below, or watch this cute promo video which spells it all out with an old school flair.

Of note this year: certain days of the festival will feature (in addition to lots of other programming) a more specialized focus on blues, jazz or metal, for example, so hardcore fans of those genres can see more of what they want with less time cursing indie rockers. There's also late-night electronic music curated in partnership with the Decibel Festival, a new stage (The Promenade) planned outside McCaw Hall and a stage dedicated almost entirely to Sub Pop acts. More details and tickets at bumbershoot.org.
