Your guide to Seattle’s Capitol Hill Block Party, featuring Father John Misty, Dillon Francis, Brockhampton and more

What once started out as a one day event, Capitol Hill Block Party now spreads throughout six blocks in the heartbeat of Seattle. A complete lineup was released earlier this week, which included the addition of Unknown Moral Orchestra. The beautiful part of CHBP is that they champion local talent while mixing in major national artists.

There’s more to a festival than just the musical acts, something that CHBP has taken a great deal of time to curate. In addition to announcing 55+ more musical artists, there will be a silent disco, wellness programs, community speakers, morning yoga, and after dark parties.

Now let’s breakdown this three-day lineup.

Father John Misty

The city of Seattle is in need of his performance. Ask anybody in Seattle who a typical PNW artist would be – it’s him. There’s a high amount of favor for this man since he’s signed to a Seattle based record label, but he’s also incredibly talented. His smooth indie rock sound is exactly what people are coming for. Father John Misty’s sound differs from most of the other lineup artists which will make his set one to anticipate.

Sol

Local Seattle artist Sol, will be playing at the main stage. He opened for Macklemore, another Seattle hip-hop artist, back in December at Key Arena. There’s no way we’re missing this set as Sol always kills his performances.

Melvv

This young DJ was here back in February opening up for Hippie Sabotage. We’re excited to hear new music and dance with this up-and-coming artist.

Quinn XCII

You can’t miss Quinn XCII perform. He’s scheduled during the headliner’s performance, but you’ll love him. He signed with Visionary Music Group earlier this year. Quinn XCII’s music is incredible. Keep your eye on him, because his growth as an artist is just beginning.

Pluko

17-year-old Pluko is one artist to keep on your radar. He’s opened for the hometown favorite boys of ODESZA. This kid is quickly making a solid name for himself in the EDM scene.

Metsä

The first two years of Metsä’s career are off to a great start. A PNW boy at heart, Metsä draws musical inspiration from the beautiful nature he constantly finds himself surrounded by. He’s played at multiple festivals and has opened for Big Wild, Elohim, and Chet Porter (to name a few).

Chet Porter

Chet has been on our radar for quite some time. His music blurs the typical lines of electronic music and blends them with indie-pop sounds. There’s no box for Chet Porter, and that’s exactly how we like it.

BROCKHAMPTON

Do we need to say more? Probably not, but we will. This set is not to be missed. The BROCKHAMPTON boys go above and beyond to make sure that their sets are unique. They constantly push the social norms of what a rap group is supposed to look and sound like while cultivating a community of loyal fans. There will definitely be people camped out all day to be close for this show.

Cashmere Cat

It’s always fun watching Cashmere Cat perform. He always brings something fresh to the table. His performances are insanely unique and well produced. Cashmere Cat knows how to time transitions while keeping crowd energy high.

Capital Hill Block Party will be the event of the summer – the one you will have serious FOMO over if you’re not there. You can find more information and purchase tickets here.
