Bumbershoot lineup has Kitsap connections

Bumbershoot announced the music lineup for its Labor Day weekend, and it includes a couple of Kitsap connections.

The top names on the list of performers are Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Death Cab For Cutie. Death Cab, of course, is fronted by Olympic High School product Ben Gibbard.

Lemolo, the dream-pop brain child of North Kitsap’s Meagan Grandall, will be making a return appearance. With a second CD — the excellent “Red Right Return” — to play, they’ll be in the Seattle Center extravaganza for the first time since 2011.

Also among the acts announced for Bumbershoot 2016 are KYGO, Tame Impala, G-Eazy, Pretty Lights, Halsey, DJ Snake, Father John Misty, and … Billy Idol. Every year, the festival seems to come up with one or two veteran artists that up the Cool Quotient, and this year, it’s … Billy Idol.
