Bumbershoot 2012: Promise Ring, Skrillex, Passion Pit, M83 -- Photos

So many new music festivals pop up every summer, even Coachella feels old school now. But Seattle's Bumbershoot is truly one of the originals: Since it began in 1971 (and was called Festival '71 back then, coincidentally), it has more ties to Woodstock than it does to, say, Lollapalooza. And even though Bumbershoot's grown to include major artists and sponsors, it's still got its quirky local-ness intact, as this gallery from Hive photographer Chona Kasinger shows. She's got portraits of Jeopardy boy genius Ken Jennings, Oberhofer stuffing their faces, and images from the visual art Elvistravaganza! mingled in with portraits of headliners like Jane's Addiction, Big Sean and Skrillex.
