    There's some stuff to get excited about, but overall I'm really disappointed. Wish I hadn't bought pre-sales.

    I'm actually thinking of booking this, there's certainly more to be excited about here than Musicfest NW. Waiting to see what FYF has going on though, I imagine they'll probably beat this pretty handily.

    There is still an electronic installment of artists that will be added to the lineup soon, and I believe it's still curated by Decibal, so that will hopefully be something to look forward to.

    What other Festivals are happening that weekend? Jay's Z's thing?

    The Wu-Tang Bumbershoot and NIN/Soundgarden Shed gig conflict the same night in the Seattle area is annoying.

    The lineup for the 2 Alberta Festivals the same weekend show some names that could improve the Bumbershoot 2014 lineup. Jack White played 3 nights in a row in 2012 and there are direct flights.

    9 weeks later and no word on added acts yet. In the past they have added names prior to mid July.

    Also, they need to fill the gap left by the passing of Bobby Womack.

    Bobby Womack was replaced by Mavis Staples.

    Schedule is up.

    Where are the additions? Monday I can more or less skipped entirely and Saturday doesn't have much keeping me there.

    Sunday is very nicely stacked and has me excited.

    Advance 3 day passes were $131 after fees ending sometime in may. Now it's $156 after fees.

    Maybe the Music West/Pabst/Rifflandia/Sasquatch/Pemberton/Squamish competition got to them finally? NIN/Soundgarden or Dve Matthews band the same weekend isn't helping. Frankly there's more exciting gigs by acts the 2-3 weeks before/after the festival like Jack White, Beck, Slint and The Eagles and taking away business.

    Wu-Tang/Replacements/Foster as headliners is not how to fill the festival grounds for the entire day.

    They dropped the price (before taxes/fees) from $199 to $145.

    If I could get the time off and get a reasonable flight price , I would be there for the Replacements, the non-music offerings, and the decent undercard (Costello, Los Lobos, Musselwhite, etc.) for that price point on the GA.

    Nobody pays the $199 unless you're an idiot buying online the week of the festival. Easy to find daily tickets under $40 outside the gate.

    Posted 2 weeks ago on the festival's facebook page.

    MESSAGE TO OUR BUMBERFANS
    Bumbershoot experienced a financial setback this year, which unfortunately is not unusual in any major festival production. Advancement of the festival and meeting our obligations are our top priorities. One Reel’s executives and board of directors have been actively and diligently pursuing multiple options to ensure those outcomes. We are unable to comment further at this time but anticipate having more information available in the coming weeks. Thanks for your continued support!
