The annual Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle, running from July 24 to 26, is one of those rare festivals that combines an intimate urban setting with a well curated roster of both local and international artists. Close enough to Vancouver that anyone can easily attend yet far enough to feel like you’re actually going on an adventure, this party is a consistent good time all around.
This week, Capital Hill Block Party released the full lineup for the 2015 festival as well as the availability of single day tickets and two-day passes.
Northwest indie rocker Father John Misty is performing in support of his highly-acclaimed album, “I Love You, Honeybear,” released in February on Seattle’s Sub Pop Records. Folk-pop group Ivan & Alyosha, Philadelphia-based punk rock group Girlpool, Los Angeles producer Kodak to Graph and The Physics, the famed Seattle hip-hop group that came together at O’Dea High School, were also added to the lineup. Headliners announced earlier include TV On The Radio, RATATAT, The Kills, Toro y Moi, Built to Spill and Jamie xx.
Single day tickets will be on sale for $50 and two-day passes will be available for $90. Three-day passes are currently on sale for $125. CHBP is also continuing to offer VIP three-day passes for $250. The VIP packages include access to indoor and outdoor VIP lounges, limited edition festival apparel, complimentary food and drinks throughout the weekend and gifts from event sponsors.
