The weather promises to be gorgeous, which is fortunate for those heading out to Seattle Center for the annual Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival. For three days, attendees will immerse themselves in music, theater, comedy, dance, visual art and literature. With such a wide scope of acts on the schedule, it’s helpful to turn to our local media for pointers on what not to miss at Bumbershoot this year. The Stranger has an exhaustive guide to the festival with great features on headliners Hall & Oates, metal-influenced rockers Red Fang, soul legend Dennis Coffey and more. Local blog Sound on the Sound picked out the must-see sets by Seattle artists, plus the top five acts editor Abbey Simmons won’t be missing. The culture mavens at Seattle Met Magazine give their top recommendations in each category for all three days at Bumbershoot, as does the savvy staff over at Seattle Weekly.
