The 2008 Capitol Hill Block Party

Devotchka will play the Main Stage- for the Grateful Web

The 2008 Capitol Hill Block Party takes over Seattle's South Capitol Hill neighborhood July 25-26 with its best lineup yet. The Capitol Hill Block Party is an annual music festival that draws upon and showcases the best indie and underground rock in the US, with a special focus on its Northwest artists. Launched 11 years ago, the Block Party has evolved into one of Seattle's most anticipated outdoor music festivals. With over 50 bands on 4 stages, great food, and plenty of cheap beer, this is one of the best parties of the summer.

John Richards - KEXP Morning Show Host exclaims, "The Block Party has become the place that people go to discover any band worth discovering in Seattle.  With an added push towards better up and coming and some established alternative and independent bands in the mix, it's truly a great experience for anyone who attends.  It's also has become the one event that really brings the Seattle music industry together, albeit in the VIP section and somewhat intoxicated."

We have partnered with KEXP to broadcast selected live performances from several bands throughout the weekend. John Richards and Cheryl Waters and other KEXP DJ's will also be broadcasting their shows like from the festival Friday and Saturday day and night. And The crazies at The Stranger will also be filming and posting clips at their awesome music blog. http://lineout.thestranger.com

Partial proceeds from The Block Party benefit two excellent non-profits: Home Alive, which encourages violence prevention, and The Vera Project, a youth run all ages venue and recording studio in Seattle. 

The Block Party continues to be one of the least expensive festivals in the country, with tickets only $18 in advance and a 2 day pass for only $34.
