“We are thrilled to be back and leading with an arts program that reflects the founding principles of Bumbershoot,” Steven Severin, co-president & Director of Music Programming, shared in a statement. “We heard from our community and took action – fulfilling our promise of affordability and inclusivity. When re-imagining our festival for this return, we examined everything through an arts lens and expanded upon what art is and can be.”

“The long-awaited return of Bumbershoot Arts & Music Festival will bring new energy and inspiration to Seattle, showcasing the creativity that helped put our city on the map,” Seattle mayor Bruce Harrell shared. As we activate and revitalize our downtown, I’m particularly excited about the next generation of artists, who will use this space at our cultural heart of Seattle Center to showcase their craft. Beyond a set of fantastic shows, Bumbershoot is a critical opportunity to grow our city’s creative economy and embrace our One Seattle vision — bringing communities together through shared experiences.”
