Seattle, Washington (July 26-28)

For decades, Bumbershoot has been Seattle’s signature arts festival, taking over the city every Labor Day. But since 1997, the Capitol Hill Block Party has been presenting impressive lineups a few weeks beforehand, with this year’s headliners including the Flaming Lips and Girl Talk. It’s an especially rap-friendly lineup this time around, too, with everyone from Danny Brown to Big Freedia to El-P and Killer Mike rocking the mic.
