Earlier this month, we shared the initial line-up for the 2014 Capitol Hill Block Party, and today we bring you the whole darn thing, as announced by festival owner Jason Lajeunesse on The Morning Show on KEXP.
From July 25th through 27th, Block Party presents this stellar line-up in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood:
A$AP Rocky // Spoon // Chromeo // Matt and Kim // The War on Drugs // ODESZA // The Budos Band // A$AP Ferg // Dum Dum Girls // RAC // Beat Connection // The Julie Ruin // Star Slinger // Sol // Robert Delong // Tanlines // xxyyxx // Man or Astro-man? // Angel Olsen // Poolside // EMA // Cymbals // Slow Magic // Small Black // HOLYCHILD // Shy Girls // Hundred Waters // Pillar Point // Raz Simone // Iska Dhaaf // The Chain Gang of 1974 // Wild Ones // Kithkin // Cataldo // Weed // Special Explosion // Childbirth // Katie Kate // Tangerine // Sandrider // Otieno Terry // Lemolo // Natasha Kimeto // Pollens // Ayron Jones & The Way // Constant Lovers // Shaprece // Gaytheist // Country Lips // Fox and the Law // Ricky and Mark // Dub Thompson // Audacity // Manatee Commune // Hand of the Hills // Tennis Pro // Dude York // Tom Eddy // Wimps // Pony Time // The Pharmacy // Vox Mod // Deadkill // Eternal Bad // Trash Fire // Grave Babies // Cabana // Tacos! // Monogamy Party // Theories // Sex Blister // Great Goddamn // Bad Motivators // The Beach Boy // Sashay // Blood Drugs // Power Bottom // Wolfgang Fuck // So Pitted // Stickers // Haunted Horses // The Dip // Paralyzer // Murmurs
One of the biggest changes for 2014 includes the expansion of the outdoor Vera Stage, which will now include national acts like Dum Dum Girls, The Julie Ruin, Robert Delong, EMA, and Man Or Astro Man?, as well as local favorites. Lajeunesse explained, "The expanded Vera Stage is a direct result of feedback from Block Party attendees. For the last couple years, about half of the national acts played the 21 and over Neumos stage, which meant some people missed out on their favorite bands. This year, we’re making the incredible lineup of national acts available to everyone."
Starting today, three-day passes can be purchased at a discounted price of $125. Single-day ticket information and details regarding the visual arts program, creative installations, digital activities and more will be announced in early June.
