Official coffee of being 43 and still rocking all three days of Bumbershoot.
After 43 years as a Bumbershoot supporter, we're back and ready to rock with our friends at Seattle Center. This year's festival promises to be another fun weekend packed with music, comedy, art and, of course, coffee.
If you're going to Bumbershoot, be sure to check out the performances on the Starbucks Stage. And if you are a My Starbucks Rewards Gold Member, you will have access to the My Starbucks Rewards Gold Member Lounge and will receive an invitation to reserve a seat on the My Starbucks Rewards Gold Viewing Deck. Both areas offer special festival perks just for Gold members. It's just one more benefit of being Gold.
And if you don't have your ticket to get into Bumbershoot, it's not too late. You can buy passes online here.

Reservations are all taken for the Gold Viewing Deck! What should I do now?
You are welcome to use the RSVP link in your email to check back later and see if any spots become available due to cancellations. Or, at the festival, once each show begins any unclaimed seats will be offered to other Gold members on a first come, first serve basis. Remember, all Gold members are also invited to stop by the My Starbucks Rewards™ Gold Member Lounge, next to the Exhibition Hall to take advantage of the special amenities there. No reservations needed for the Lounge!
