Bumbershoot, Seattle’s Music & Arts Festival now in its 46th year, is held at the 74-acre Seattle Center, home of the iconic Space Needle. This year’s Bumbershoot took place over Labor Day weekend, from September 2-4, and presented a live music lineup of 167 artists and bands performing in Key Arena, Memorial Stadium (the Main Stage), Fisher Green Stage, Starbucks Stage at Mural Amphitheater, and Silent Disco at Experience Music Project Museum’s Sky Church venue.

Pyramid Staging & Events of Auburn, Wash., helped with staging at multiple locations throughout the venue, and partnered with Carlson Audio Systems in Seattle, which handled sound reinforcement for the Main Stage (d&b audiotechnik J-Series P.A., d&b M4s for wedges, Avid Venue | Profile consoles at both FOH and monitors), Fisher Green Stage (d&b V-Series P.A., EAW MW12s for monitors, powered by QSC, plus Avid Venue SC48s at FOH and monitors), and the Mural Amphitheater Stage (EAW point source array, EAW MicroWedges at monitors, and Avid SC48 consoles). Carlson Audio has helped to support Bumbershoot since 1990.

Mix art director Todd Berkowitz was on-hand to capture many of the bands that performed, and we present them here.
