MGMT, Yeasayer, and the Dead Weather are just a few of heavy hitters that will be headlining this year's Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle, July 23-25. Also set for the festival's 2010 edition: Blonde Redhead, Atmosphere, !!!, Harlem, Past Lives, Bear in Heaven, Blitzen Trapper, Here We Go Magic, and dozens more.
Expanded to a three-day event for the first time in its 14-year history, the Block Party is turning into a marquee event in the music-hungry Pacific Northwest. Speaking to festival media partner The Stranger, festival co-founder David Meinert attributed the growth to "community support and tremendous talent opportunities."
