Capitol Hill Block Party Announces 2023 Lineup
By Paul Broderson
Today, those crazy kids over at Daydream State announced the lineup for the 25th edition of the Capitol Hill Block Party (CHBP). You remember, right? That humble little gathering in the Pike/Pine corridor that used to have DJs and a few bands playing on the street?
Those days are, of course, long gone. These days, the event boasts a carefully-curated lineup of emerging national and international talent. This year is no different, with headliners like electronic music group Louis The Child, New York City-based Grammy Award-nominated electronic duo Sofi Tukker, Florida rapper Denzel Curry, British singer PinkPantheress, and indie pop trio MUNA of “Silk Chiffon” acclaim.
What we love about CHBP is that the festival retains that original vision of local bands honing their chops in front of local denizens, you just have to wander away from the main stages periodically to find them. Details are still being finalized, but it looks like music will happen at two outdoor stages as well as nine venues, bars, restaurants and galleries within the festival footprint, like Neumos, Barboza, Cha Cha, Cafe Racer, Wild Rose, Havana, and Chophouse Row. Those rooms will likely be filled with artists you’ve read about here on NadaMucho.com or seen on the weekly Twitch stream we’re a part of, Weird At Night. When additional artists are confirmed, we’ll let you know.
In the meantime, go ahead and snag your tickets now. Alongside the headliners we mentioned above, a bunch of cool West Coast bands will be playing the main stages. These include PNW-based music icon Goth Babe, L.A.-based indie rock band Momma, Seattle-based indie pop songwriter Sea Lemon, local Seattle DJ Samurai Del, and Sammamish-based electronic musician Surf Mesa.
This year’s CHBP takes place July 21-23. Three-day general admission and VIP passes are available for presale beginning Tuesday, February 28 at 9 a.m. PT with a public on-sale beginning on Friday, March 3 at 9 a.m. PT. The full line-up is below.
