We are 35 days away from one of the most exciting Volume lineups we’ve ever announced! Of course, we’re biased; the two-day festival (June 3-4) — featuring more than 100 bands at 10 venues — is the Inlander's own event. But this year is about to be bigger than ever before.
• First, Seattle hip-hop duo Shabazz Palaces is headlining the whole festival. With this act, you get one half of Digable Planets. Yes, the influential New York jazz/hip-hop band that’s currently on a reunion tour and playing this year’s Sasquatch! shares a member in Ishmael Butler, aka Palaceer Lazaro. Started in 2009, along with multi-instrumentalist Tendai "Baba" Maraire, this experimental rap duo is the first hip-hop group to get signed to Sub Pop Records and they’re absolutely going to kill their closing Saturday set at Volume.
• Second, we’ve added in more music venues, meaning you’ll have to run even more between shows to see the acts you want.
Baby Bar (all-ages until 9 pm)
The Bartlett (all-ages)
Big Dipper (all-ages)
The Pin! (all-ages)
Red Room Lounge
Terrain Stage at the Cracker Co. Building (all-ages)
