Bumbershoot Announces EDM Programming
May 30, 2014
Hook N Sling, Savant, and Myon & Shane 54 are just three of the electronic acts performing at this year’s Bumbershoot. These acclaimed DJs appear as part of a nightly EDM program called “Conscious Nights at Bumbershoot” presented by local powerhouse promoter USC Events. The series — which features international, national, and local talent — takes over the new Pavilion Stage near the skatepark starting at 7 pm each evening.
“We’re excited to partner with Bumbershoot for the second year in a row and expand our efforts to provide festivalgoers with three nights of dance music this time around,” says USC’s Doug McIntyre. “Our aim is to combine USC-style production and special effects with a hand-picked selection of artists to showcase a wide range of EDM styles at this iconic Seattle event.”
Seasoned club-goers will recognize some of Seattle’s best DJs in addition to marquee international acts like Australia’s Hook N Sling and Norway’s Savant. “Conscious Nights at Bumbershoot” also provides an excellent opportunity for those less versed in electronic music to dip their toes into the scene while dancing into the night.
Bumbershoot’s complete musical lineup can be viewed at bumbershoot.org/lineup and includes late editions We Are Scientists. Architecture in Helsinki have cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
