Preview: Capitol Hill Block Party 2019 

Get ready to bust out those vintage circle sunglasses and faded jorts: Capitol Hill Block Party 2019 is on it’s way.

The iconic Seattle music festival takes place July 19-21, dominating the Capitol Hill district with throbbing bass and sweet guitar riffs. This year’s lineup boasts over 60 artists, providing a tasteful mix of chart-topping pop, earth-shaking electronic producers, bedroom indie artists, and party prompting hip-hop.

Headliners include college party-anthem bass producer RL Grime, undeniably talented twerking flute legend Lizzo, and legendary psych-pop heroes Phantogram. More mainstage performances will come from rapper & PNW native Aminé, UK hitmaker’s Snakehips, electronic engineer Big Wild, and Indie anthemist Mitski.

We’re especially excited to see Lizzo, who’s chart topping song “Truth Hurts” from her 2019 album “Cuz I Love You” is set to be the song of the summer, and perfectly captures the carefree playful vibe of CHBP.

Denzel Curry, who’s acclaimed 2019 album “ZUU” has solidified himself a position of respect in the ever competitive hip-hop industry, will be a treat to watch as he warms up the mainstage for Jungle, Aminé, and RL Grime on Sunday.

The festival’s lineup runs deep, promising unmissable performances from the likes of pop-kings Peach Pit, garage dream-pop artist Still Woozy, New York multi-instrumentalist Vagabon, Seattle native soul-rockers Black Tones, and the Seattle post-punk band Tres Leches.

Prepare to dance your pants off.
