The Capitol Hill Block Party, one of Seattle’s premier summer music and art festivals, is rapidly approaching and now we have gotten our first glimpse of who will be gracing the varying stages and bringing sweet music to our ears. While the list is only a partial one, it still gives us much to drool over.  In the past, the CHBP has featured artists such as Phantogram, The War On Drugs, ODESZA, Chromeo, Baths, A$AP Rocky, Slow Magic, Matt & Kim, and many others. This year, Capitol Hill’s streets will be graced by talent from RATATAT, TV On The Radio, The Kills, Giraffage, Daktyl, Kite String Tangle, and many more. Capitol Hill Block Party Seattle 2015 The three-day festival, held July 24th - 26th, is owned by Jason Lajeunesse. Last year, I had the chance to interview him, and was able to speak to him about this year's lineup.

 “This year I feel personally connected to the line up more than ever. I have history with many of the top tier acts dating back to their very first shows in the PNW, so it’s exciting to see them circle back years later headlining our festival. We made a concerted effort to book bands we felt best exemplified the spirit and history of the festival, putting an emphasis on indie rock and punk bands alongside genres like hip-hop and EDM. We booked the acts we’d want to see and, as a result, the artists we chose reflect the energy and heart of this music festival and neighborhood.”

 I can say I agree with him. This lineup is over-saturated with talent and will bring so many beautiful sounds to the streets of Capitol Hill. This year is shaping up to be one of the best ever. A limited number of discounted 3-Day passes are on sale now for $99 (link below) and more will be on sale April 3rd. Single day tickets and the full lineup reveal will be announced in early June. In a world full of rising festival ticket prices, and generic productions, the CHBP stands out as a shining light for music lovers as it brings world class talent to such a unique and intimate setting for such a low cost.
