This was our second year at Bumbershoot, Seattle’s Music and Arts Festival. Three days to soak up the warm summer sun and bathe in the cool evening moon. Three days to enjoy the sounds of some of the best music happening right now. The main stage is inside Key Arena but most of the other stages are outside, scattered around Seattle Center and within eye shot of the Space Needle. Last year was great. I hoped this year would be as good. As it turns out, it was even better.
