I had the pleasure of attending the annual, Seattle based festival Capitol Hill Block Party in July. My favorite thing about this festival is that it doesn't feel like a festival. You go to Capitol Hill with your friends, you drink beer, and you float around to different musical acts, local and global. If you're looking for an excuse to visit Seattle during the summertime, use Capitol Hill Block Party.
One of my favorite things about music festivals: discovering new artists and favorite songs. I've compiled a list of my favorites, those I knew and those I discovered, during this magical summer weekend.
