Bumbershoot Goes Back to Memorial Stadium

From The Slog, news that Memorial Stadium will be used all three-days of Bumbershoot.  Here's hoping between allowing a women's soccer team, Reign FC,  to use the field and Bumbershoot, it's a shot of money that can be used to update that stadium. 

Seattle's annual Labor Day arts festival Bumbershoot is moving its Mainstage from KeyArena to Memorial Stadium. Key had served that function for the last three years. Memorial Stadium's comeback comes with a new configuration.

Yes--and this "shot of money" could be more significant if the district would allow the Reign and Bumbershoot to have beer gardens at their events. I may be wrong about this (it's my grapevine talking here) but my understanding is that both organizations have made this ask--with an offer that includes a percentage of sales going to SPS--and have been denied.

The Grateful Dead played there and I thought beer was served but I was pregnant at the time and not really paying attention to beer.
