chbp-2015-logo-1000

On this Tuesday morning, the annual Capitol Hill Block Party announced the full lineup and daily schedule for their 20th anniversary event, occurring July 22th through the 24th in Seattle. Among the national inclusions are experimental rapper Mick Jenkins, chillwave pioneer Washed Out, and famed Portland downtempo project Emancipator, while the likes of Mommy Long Legs, Colorworks, and Tangerine join the local favorites. A limited number of single day passes are on sale beginning today.

To celebrate its 20th anniversary with the local community, this year Capitol Hill Block Party is going “beyond the fences” of the festival’s footprint and partnering with surrounding Capitol Hill venues to offer extended programming, similar to other Seattle festivals like Bumbershoot and Folklife. Extended programming includes free evening shows at Unicorn on FridaySaturday and Sunday, daytime performances and Sunday Morning Yoga at Chop House Row, as well as a poster show in conjunction with the Capitol Hill Arts Walk that begins July 14th and runs through the festival.

”Capitol Hill is the artistic and cultural epicenter of Seattle,” says owner/producer Jason Lajeunesse. “This year, we want to activate the entire neighborhood and community to celebrate arts and culture with us.”

More information on CHBP’s 20th anniversary extended programming will be available via the CHBP Twitter account (@CHBlockParty) and website (http://capitolhillblockparty.com) as the festival approaches.
