Maybe you don't live in Seattle, or maybe you have to work all weekend... if you can't make it to the 2014 Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival this weekend, let KEXP bring the music to you! All weekend long, we'll be broadcasting on site from our exclusive music lounge. Listen around the world to live sets from some of the bands playing the festival, and keep an eye on the KEXP Blog for exclusive photos and reports all day long.
Or maybe you will be at Bumbershoot, and would like to attend these sessions in person? Each session is currently full, but you can stop by the KEXP booth (located by the Fisher-Green stage) 30 minutes before your desired artist starts to inquire about any unclaimed passes. These sessions are incredibly unique and intimate, and well, let's face it, it's pretty nice to sit in an air conditioned room for a little while during a largely-outdoor fest!Check out each day’s lineup below, and watch video from last year’s incredible performances on the KEXP Blog here:
