Photo Journal: Bumbershoot 2013

There were just over a 100,000 people in attendance at Seattle’s annual Bumbershoot Arts and Music Festivat on Labour Day weekend. The festival, now in its 42nd year, is held at Seattle City Centre, which couldn’t be a more perfect site. Surrounded by arenas, concert halls and the Experience Music Project, it’s a music lover’s paradise.

But Bumbershoot is not a music festival, it’s an arts festival. They make this very clear in their slogan “Art In The Great North Left.” But unlike other festivals cashing in on this idea, Bumbershoot is a true “arts fest.” Theatre, Film, Comedy, and of course Music filled the venues each day and provided festival goers with a wide range of things to see and participate in.
