Capitol Hill Block Party Announces 2014 Headliners

Posted by April 15th, 2014 4 Comments »

Just from a first glance, this year’s Capitol Hill Block Party lineup is truly unlike any other local festival, featuring a resilient mixture of genre and overwhelming talent including A$AP Rocky, Chromeo and Spoon. The festival takes place on July 25-27 across five stages in the vicinity of the Pike St. and Broad St. intersection.

Here’s a list of the main stage acts announced today for CHBP 2014:

A$AP Rocky
Matt and Kim
The War on Drugs
A$AP Ferg
Beat Connection
Star Slinger
Budos Band
Angel Olsen
Shy Girls

The rest of the lineup will be announced in early May. Until then, you can purchase one of the limited $99 presale three-day passes, which are sure to become a hot commodity come July. Three-day passes on sale today at 9 a.m. through April 17 for $99, April 18 through April 28 for $115, and April 29 until festival for $125. Also, for the first time ever, CHBP will offer a very limited number of VIP tickets for $250. VIP Packages will include express entry, limited edition apparel, complimentary beverage, a CHBP poster, and gifts from their sponsors.

Ticket-buyers will have an option to donate to Creative Advantage, a local organization seeking to restore arts education to all Seattle classrooms.

    Perfect. Now I can save more for Pickathon and B-shoot.

    Matt and Kim. I want to kill the first person I see everytime I hear that song that sounds like “Chopsticks.”..

    Been in the city for almost 2 decades (old man) and I have yet to attend a “Block Party” this lineup is not tempting me to pop my block party cherry. Who is the must see?

    I was lucky enough to play DJ sets in between sets on one of the Block Party stages several years back, watched from a few feet away the gorgeous rock destruction of Blood Brothers opening for The Melvins. Spoon, Angel Olsen, Beat Connection… good bands. I’d pay to see ’em. But I’m not seeing anything here that will drag my tired old ass into The No Parking Zone and rub sweaty elbows with the festival types. Not my scene.

    Portugal. The man, quoting Tame Impala RE: festival types: “a bunch of Tarzans.”
