The first round of acts won't be announced till the spring, but 3-day passes to Bumbershoot are going for $60 right now. They're only going to get spendier. Dates of the fest are Aug. 30 to Sept. 1.
This is as good a time as any to start talking about dream Bumbershoot acts. Brian J. Barr has already pleaded for Sly & the Family Stone. A Soundgarden reunion gets tossed around every once in a while.
