Capitol Hill Block Party (CHBP) today announced the first wave of performers confirmed for the 2015 music festival, which is scheduled for July 24-26 in Seattle. Headliners include critically-acclaimed TV on the Radio, UK garage punk band The Kills and New York City electronic duo RATATAT. Discounted three-day passes are on sale now for $99 through April 2.
“This year I feel personally connected to the line up more than ever. I have history with many of the top tier acts dating back to their very first shows in the PNW, so it’s exciting to see them circle back years later headlining our festival. We made a concerted effort to book bands we felt best exemplified the spirit and history of the festival, putting an emphasis on indie rock and punk bands alongside genres like hip-hop and EDM.” said Jason Lajeunesse, the festival’s owner and producer. “We booked the acts we’d want to see and, as a result, the artists we chose reflect the energy and heart of this music festival and neighborhood.”
Fans will be able to enjoy a diverse lineup of local and national musical acts across three days and five stages. Three-day passes are available for $99 through April 2; for $125 between April 3 and July 4; and for $150 beginning July 5. VIP tickets will also be available for $250 and will include limited edition apparel, access to the outdoor VIP beer garden with hosted snacks and beverages, a Capitol Hill Block Party poster, and gifts from our sponsors.
The full musical lineup and single day pass prices and availability will be announced in early June. Details regarding the visual arts program, creative installations, digital activities and more will be announced at a later date.
