The headliners include popular singer-songwriter Neko Case, indie darlings Fitz and the Tantrums, Major Lazer, Phantogram, The Lumineers, Grimes, Aesop Rock w/ Rob Sonic & DJ Big Wiz, Youth Lagoon and more.
The Block Party runs July 20-22 and features six stages and over 100 bands spanning a six block area on Capitol Hill.
The festival focuses on so-called "indie music" with a mix of national and local acts. It has grown markedly each year since it's inception, expanding in recent years to three days and drawing over 10,000 people a day.
Tickets are $75 for a three-day pass until April 24th, then $85 after.
We'll be taking a closer look and listen to the lineup Sunday at 3p on Seattle Sounds.
