Bumbershoot fills Seattle Center for 43rd year



Death Cab for Cutie performs at this year's Bumbershoot, which takes place Saturday through Monday, Aug. 31-Sept. 2, at Seattle Center.


Bumbershoot, the arts festival known originally as Festival '71 and dubbed Bumbershoot in 1973, takes place from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday through Monday, Aug. 31-Sept. 2, at Seattle Center.

The name was chosen to describe the festival as an umbrella for all of the various arts and performers it encompasses.
