Bumbershoot takes over downtown Seattle this weekend, bringing in some of the most talented artists from all over the music world. Nestled in the Seattle Center, Bumbershoot is a magical utopia of music in one of America’s busiest cities. There’s so many reasons to attend Bumbershoot, but the music is obviously key. Navigating the stacked lineup might be difficult, so we’re here to help you out with five of our favorite acts. Check out our top picks below, and we’ll see you on the dance floor this weekend!


Whethan (Friday 6:20 KeyArena)

Whethan has been taking the electronic world by storm with his infectious music, and his live shows are not to be missed. The young Chicago native is a master behind the decks, mixing his own music with a little bit of everything, creating a new experience at every show.


Die Antwoord (Friday 10 KeyArena)

If you’ve never seen Die Antwoord live, do yourself a favor and make it happen. Hate them or love them, they put on an insane show. Their stage presence is just as crazy and polarizing as their music itself, and it’s a unique act that you’re not going to find anywhere else.


Big Wild (Saturday 8:25 KeyArena)

Big Wild is bringing all of the feels to KeyArena on Saturday, a stage that’s mostly reserved for the wildest acts on the lineup. Don’t miss this chance to vibe out with your friends before you get back into dancing your asses off later in the night.


Solange (Sunday 7:50 Main Stage)

Beyonce’s younger sister definitely inherited the musical genes, but takes her music in a more soulful direction. Solange is electric on stage, and is not to be missed.


ODESZA (Sunday 9:20 Main Stage)

There’s absolutely no reason to miss ODESZA closing out Bumbershoot in their hometown, on the opening date of their massive A Moment Apart Tour. They’ve completely revamped their live show, and this is the first opportunity to see one of the best live acts in electronic music in their element.
