Festival lineups are no longer merely announced, they are turned into events and adventures. As such, One Reel--the folks behind the 41st annual Bumbershoot Festival--will announce the first confirmed act of the 2011 festival on Sunday around noon on their Facebook page. Another act will be announced every day of the month.
Soundgarden, which is emerging from its sleepy reunion for a summer tour, does not have a Seattle date booked yet. They're rumored to be on the Bumbershoot bill (as they are every year). I think it goes without saying that a Soundgarden/Bumbershoot marriage would be good for all parties involved. But, who knows, they may be playing Block Party.
We'll have to wait--all month--and see. The full lineup will be announced on June 1.
