Announcing the 2018 Capitol Hill Block Party Line-Up

Capitol Hill Block Party, Music News

If you're not here in the KEXP Gathering Space for the Capitol Hill Block Party 2018 Announce Party -- and really, why are you not here? Free food, record shopping, and, oh yeah, Sol and The Dip? -- but, if you're not here, we've got this year's line-up right below! 

Our favorite honey bear Father John Misty returns to the intersection of Pike Street and Broadway. Remember when he performed back in 2015? Much like the KEXP airwaves, the line-up runs the gamut of genres, from the dramatic DJ beats of Dillon Francis to the twee-pop of Alvvays to the 15-member rap crew Brockhampton. Much like the free food in the KEXP Gathering Space right now, there is something for everyone.

Father John Misty // Dillon Francis // Brockhampton // Oh Wonder // Goldlink // Cashmere Cat // Alvvays // Sol // Betty Who // Ryan Caraveo // Quinn XCII // Two Feet // Yaeji // Bully // TR/ST // The Dip // Jamila Woods // Chet Porter // Amber Mark // Kelly Lee Owens // Melvv // Overcoats // Gavin Turek // Great Grandpa // Dude York // Pluto // Flasher // Busty and the Bass // Teskey Brothers // Chong the Nomad // PARISALEXA // Metsä, and many more!
