Seattle’s Capitol Hill Block Party will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year on July 22nd-24th. Today, organizers announced the first round of artists who will perform at the three-day festival.

CHVRCHES, Crystal Castles, and ODESZA top the bill, the last of which is returning to headline the event after performing as an opening act just two years ago. Other highlights include The Joy Formidable, MØ, STRFKR, Thundercat, The Cave Singers, Goldlink, Tourist, Car Seat Headrest, DJDS, Israel Nash, WAND, Pure Bathing Culture, Thunderpussy, Ultimate Painting, Great Good Fine Ok, and Mild High Club.

“Reaching a 20 year milestone really speaks to Capitol Hill’s commitment and support of music and art,” CHBP owner and producer Jason Lajeunesse said in a statement. “The city is growing at an alarming rate, so the fact that we are able to continue championing national and local music talent in the middle of the streets, on this scale, is pretty remarkable.”
