We’re excited about this year’s Music Lineup, and so is the press! Here’s a look at some of the great things people have been saying.

Local music blog The Drainage calls our lineup “explosively awesome and pretty rad,” while Diffuser.fm says it’s “stacked with killer names.”

San Jose Mercury News highlights that “Bumbershoot usually succeeds with its versatility and its depth,” giving mention to our “amazing array of musical talent.”

Guerrilla Candy writes, “Once again, Bumbershoot will be a great place to both enjoy classics and to discover your next favorite band. I can’t wait until Labor Day weekend!”
