2016 Bumbershoot draws big names, crowds
As the sun sank last Sunday night the fountain at the Seattle Center was illuminated with a projector displaying bands who played at the main stage, and festival goers gathered around the blasting water under a crown of green balloons that had been strung up above the festival grounds.
This year's Bumbershoot was bigger than ever and artists like Billy Idol, Tame Impala, Death Cab for Cutie and Macklemore drew thousands of fans. Other offerings included a large group yoga session, an oyster eating contest and silent discos.
The Ballard News-Tribune checked in on the festival and captured some photos of the festival goers whooping it up and performers melting fan faces with utter rock raw power.
