Seattle’s Bumbershoot festival will return to ol’ Space Needle Town in September, and this year it has managed to land Macklemore & Ryan Lewis—one of the city’s favorite non-Pearl Jam musical groups—to headline. They’ll be joined by fellow Washingtonians (and fellow headliners) Death Cab For Cutie, with non-Washingtonians KYGO, Tame Impala, Billy Idol, Father John Misty, Explosions In The Sky, Run The Jewels, Fetty Wap, and Third Eye Blind representing the musical talents that can be found outside of the Seattle area.

Bumbershoot 2016 will kick off on September 2 and run until September 4, with passes going on sale on April 29. Also, Macklemore will be throwing out the first pitch during the Seattle Mariners game on April 29, with Ryan Lewis most likely standing behind him making cool beats while Macklemore gets all the attention.
