City Arts Fest 2012 is happening

The third annual Heineken City Arts Fest returns to Seattle this October 17th-20th. There is certainly no shortage of music festivals both in and around the Seattle area and Washington State what with the likes of Bumbershoot, Sasquatch! Music Fest, Decibel Fest, Reverb, Capitol Hill Block Party and Doe Bay Fest which all have there fair share of huge must see acts and huge crowds as well.

I'm sure City Arts Fest will have people coming out in droves to see David Byrne and St. Vincent who are playing in support of their collaborative record, Love This Giant, Ghostland Observatory, The Maldives, My Goodness, Eoto, Two Door Cinema Club, Lemolo, The Physics, Mos Def and oh so many more acts that you must see in order to have a good week.

Steven Graham of The Everett Herald dropped by the mixtape recently to break the festival down the only way we knew how. Awesomely.
