SEATTLE (CelebrityAccess) — After a challenging year in 2019, organizers for the Bumbershoot Festival announced that the event will return for 2020.
Details about the event, including its location for 2020 have yet to be announced.
“While the details won’t be announced until early next year, we can tell you this: Everyone at One Reel is excited to usher in a new era for Bumbershoot that embraces the festival’s long legacy of multi-generational programming and community participation,” a statement from producer One Reel Productions said.
“We are currently working with the City of Seattle and Seattle Center, to create a new model for Bumbershoot that honors both the festival’s origin and history, while ensuring the festival is sustainable for the long haul,” the statement added.
News that the festival will take place next year follows reports that Los Angeles-based event producer AEG Presents has declined to renew its option to produce the festival next year.
AEG Presents has booked and promoted Bumbershoot for the past five years.
