The Sub Pop Stage at 2012’s Bumbershoot (w/ Hardly Art!)


It has already been announced and shared fairly far and wide but we’re here now to, all right, somewhat belatedly, but nonetheless enthusiastically, confirm that there will indeed be a Sub Pop Stage at Seattle’s Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival, which will be held September 1-3rd at The Seattle Center. This first-time Sub Pop co-curated stage will feature, not surprisingly, some Sub Pop bands, but also Hardly Art artists and number of other great bands from across the country. And what with our name being on a stage over there and all, they’ve given us this promo code — SubpopStage — to get Sub Pop fans into the festival at a special discounted rate. So what we’re saying is, go ahead and get those discounted tickets here now and then when the first weekend of September comes around, you’ll be able to head on over to the Sub Pop Stage and catch performances from acts such as Sera Cahoone, Blitzen Trapper, The Helio Sequence, Low, Mudhoney, Niki & The Dove, Seapony, Unnatural Helpers, The Vaselines and more. Sounds like a plan to us.

For more information on the weekend’s festivities, you can look to the Bumbershoot site for the Festival’s full line-up, schedule, and ticketing information , but be sure to remember to add in the special Sub Pop promo code — SubpopStage — if you wanna get the discounted $40 “Any Day” rate for the Festival.

Oh, and to help pass the time before the show Sub Pop and Hardly Art have created the following playlists for your listening and viewing pleasures. We’d hate for you to not be able to sing along at the shows, after all.
