Capitol Hill Block Party – the 23 year-old music festival that puts a host of emerging local artists alongside a smattering of rising national acts and carefully curated headliners – today announced the full lineup of performers for its 2019 music and arts festival, scheduled for July 19-21 in the heart of Capitol Hill in the Pike Pine corridor. Headliners include bass beacon RL Grime, electro-pop duo Phantogram, and singer-rapper-flautist Lizzo. Many of this year’s local acts have been highlighted previously on our digital pages, including The Black Tones, Wild Powwers, Tres Leches, The Spider Ferns, Jason McCue and many others.
Organizers also shared information about a number of community partnerships and free programming for the neighborhood.
To build upon the holistic cultural experience and energy of the festival, Capitol Hill Block Party will also host free community events and activities, including a CHBP artist panel with Q&A, courtyard DJs at Chophouse Row, poster and photo shows, and with plans to activate Cal Anderson park on both Saturday and Sunday for outdoor yoga, health and wellness activities, the return of 35th North’s Battle on the Block Skate Competition, and a Bat N’ Rouge fundraising softball game.
“Every year we look for new ways to celebrate the diversity of Seattle’s culture and add value to the many great local businesses in the neighborhood and city,” said event Associate Producer, Kate Harris. “Providing a platform where local artists can continue to grow and organizations benefit from the additional exposure is an important way to unify the local community and preserve our fiercely independent and artistic nature,” added event Co-Owner and Senior Producer, Jason Lajeunesse.
Single-day, two-day, three-day and VIP passes went on sale today at 9 a.m. PT. In conjunction with the event tickets going on sale, Capitol Hill Block Party is pledging to match donations to raise a total of $5,000 for four of the event’s nonprofit partners: Jubilee Women’s Center, which provides transitional housing for women in poverty; The Vera Project, a volunteer all-ages arts center; Artists for Progress, a collection of creative activists; and Lifelong, a community health organization.
