Capitol Hill Block Party Headliners Announced!

Posted by on Tue, Apr 15, 2014 at 9:01 AM

Save the dates! Capitol Hill Block Party 2014 will take place July 25-27.

Who are the headliners this year? Well, we have A$AP Rocky, Chromeo, Matt and Kim, the War on Drugs, Odesza, Sol, A$AP Ferg, Beat Connection, Star Slinger, Spoon, Budos Band, Tanlines, XXYYXX, Angel Olsen, Poolside, Cymbals, and Shy Girls. I took the liberty of making you a sweet Spotify Block Party playlist to blast while you check out discounted 3-day and VIP passes, which became available exactly one minute ago!

CHBP tells us:

With just 101 days until the gates open, a limited number of discounted three-day passes will go on sale today at 9 a.m. for $99. For the first time ever, CHBP will offer a very limited number of VIP tickets for $250. VIP Packages will include express entry, limited edition apparel, complimentary beverage, a CHBP poster, and gifts from our sponsors.

Order your tickets here -- > capitolhillblockparty.strangertickets.com

Stay tuned for the full lineup announcement and details regarding the visual arts program, creative installations, and digital activities!

A$AP Rocky opened for Rihanna @ key arena. He SUCKED! Really is that the best lineup you could get? I'll pass.

Wow for the second year I have no interest in this what so ever. I'm sure it will be dope though, still one of the best parties of the year.

And the giant sucking sound of the two weekend Sasquatch debacle has had it's lasting effect. Where are the big names? Nothing? At least Spoon was able to salvage something after Sasquatch part deux was canceled, but this weak lineup undoubtedly is a result of the commitments bands made to the July Sasquatch.

Will J├Ągermeister be served? Will it be epic and legendary? The locals from The Hill (hee hee) will doubtless want to duck and cover as all the outside douchebros invade their quiet community. What could be attracting these unscrupulous drunks?

@3, I agree. Same for his mediocre bars & restaurants.

Dave Meinert hates women.*

*why else would he support a "tip credit"?

Do I have to feel old if I haven't even heard of half of these people?

chbp is awesome for our community. I feel so much more connected to my neighbors as a result of it.

I'll pass as well. This line-up is catered to the assholes. No offense I guess you really know how to get the Bellevue bros out to a show and you really know where your market is at this point. I'll see everyone else at Timbr.

Budos fucking kills, but seriously... this line up needs help.

Sell me a VIP ticket that guarantees me a 3 ft radius of open space around me at all times and I might bite.

This will be a nice opportunity for even more straight bros and assholes to "discover" Capitol Hill.

What's worse a bellevue bro or a self-righteous hill dweller?

I sure did enjoy A$AP Ferg and crew lead the crowd in a chant of "Suck my dick!" at Coachella.

this thing is like an ex girlfriend that visits once a year, and just reminds you how things can go from carefree and positive to an old memory that in no way resembles current reality, and illustrates the slow decay of things.

RIP Capitol Hill, RIP block party. I can't wait for the class-wars to start burning the condos down.

#23, A Bellevue bro. A self righteous hill dweller is less likely to attack one of our own or verbally abuse them.

I guess all these poeple that go see a lot of these great artists (remember, it's a matter of opinion), apparently don't waste time commenting in the Stranger comments section. Ha ha. Yes everything was cooler when you were doing everything, blah blah blah. Tell us something new. WTH does Dave Meinert have to do with you not liking Block Party? He jumped out awhile ago I believe. Now that he doesn't run it, does that mean you'll like it again? Enjoy.

I feel old. I have no idea who any of those bands are except one.
