10 bands to watch at Summer Meltdown

Things are about to get pretty serious out in Darrington this weekend because the 2013 Summer Meltdown Festival lineup is no joke. Some of the biggest bands in the northwest will be performing alongside huge national acts.

The whole lineup is fantastic but below I am listing the 10 bands you really can’t miss while you’re out there this weekend.

Learning Team is a band from Bellingham that I have seen several times but they are at the top of this list because at Capitol Hill Block Party a couple weeks ago they rocked the best set of the day and sounded better than ever. Keep an eye on these guys.

If you don’t have tickets yet, don’t worry. There are still some left but you had better get some now because they are selling fast. Ticket info here.

Oh yeah, and don’t forget your dancing shoes because this lineup is loaded from top to bottom with some of the best electronic bands out there today.
