HollywoodNews.com: The 40th Annual Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival in Seattle, Washington has become a great venue to showcase emerging talent alongside veterans. The festival has just announced the lineup for the weekend, which includes a festival kick-off by the legendary Bob Dylan.
The opening night will also feature Neko Case and The Decemberists among others. Weezer will take the stage on Sunday, and Mary J. Blige will close out of the festival on Monday.
