bumbershoot

For 20 years, Seattle’s Hugo House has served as an urban writer’s retreat at its Capitol Hill location across from Cal Anderson Park, sponsoring and hosting a wide variety of events, residencies and services for readers and writers alike.

Now in its 46th year, Seattle’s behemoth music and arts festival returns to Seattle Center for Labor Day weekend (September 2-4).

Bumbershoot (9/1-9/3) announced its 2012 music lineup today, featuring mainstage acts Jane's Addiction, Tony Bennett, Skrillex and more.

When rumors started swirling that this year’s Bumbershoot headliner was Bob Dylan, many Seattleites were disbelieving. The Bob Dylan? At our little Bumbershoot? But then it turned out to be true.
