Capitol Hill Block Party 2010 – Lineup Announcement
Seattle’s Premiere Celebration of Independent Culture
The 2010 Capitol Hill Block Party takes over Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood this time for THREE FULL DAYS, July 23-25. Capitol Hill Block Party is an annual music festival that showcases the best indie and underground music in the US, with a special focus on its Northwest artists. Set in an urban environment and launched 13 years ago, the Block Party has evolved into one of Seattle’s most anticipated outdoor music festivals. With over 60 bands on 3 stages, great food, and plenty of cheap beer, this is the best party of the summer.
“The festival’s grown every year for more than a decade because it’s fun. Show up with friends or alone, and whether or not you pay attention to what’s on stage, if you’re friendly, you’ll meet people. If you drink, you’ll not drink alone (but you will drink in a beer garden). If you holler, expect a holler back. Feel like being social? The Block Party is your best friend.“
