A$AP Rocky, Spoon and Chromeo to headline Capitol Hill Block Party

Looking for an alternative to Seattle’s overwhelmingly huge Bumbershoot Festival? Looking for a band so hip you can say you knew them when? Then look no further than the annual Capitol Hill Block Party, a three-day indie music extravaganza July 25-27 featuring headliners A$AP Rocky, Spoon and Chromeo.

The event takes place in six closed blocks of Seattle’s Capitol Hill, with two outdoor stages and events at the bars and restaurants within the closed off area.

This year’s musical acts include A$AP Rocky, Chromeo, Matt and Kim, the War on Drugs, Odesza, Sol, A$AP Ferg, Beat Connection, Star Slinger, Spoon, Budos Band, Tanlines, XXYYXX, Angel Olsen, Poolside, Cymbals, and Shy Girls.

 Three-day passes for the festival are $125 in advance, with individual day paces at $50 in advance, $60 day of show. Visit the Capitol Hill Block Party website. 


About Shawn Skager

Shawn Skager is just an everyday joe like you, who loves music and is lucky enough to be able to write about it. When he's not enjoying long walks on the beach, getting caught in the rain, pina coladas and cheesy 70s music by guys named Rupert, Shawn can usually be found in the Northwest Convergence Zone radio studio doing either the Northwest Music Scene radio show or the Hooligan Honky Tonk Radio Hour. And just for the record, Shawn believes that Rush's exclusion from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Hank Williams Sr.'s exclusion from the Grand Ol' Opry are crimes against humanity.
