Bite of Seattle

After a three-year hiatus, Seattle food and music festival The Bite of Seattle is returning July 21-23.

The event will be hosted at Seattle Center. Leading the wide range of performers are headliners Sir Mix-a-Lot, Polyrhythmics, and Nite Wave; the rest of the lineup includes #All4DORAS, Cytrus, Grace Love, Grizzled Might, All-Star Opera, Massy Ferguson, and more local performers.

"As we reunite for this iconic event, we're proud to highlight the extraordinary food and music that have become synonymous with Seattle," said CHEQ CEO Thomas Lapham in the release announcing the event.

This year, all festival-goers will do everything — including ordering food or drink — through mobile payment platform CHEQ's app.

The Bite of Seattle is free to attend, although VIP tickets are on sale now through the CHEQ app or on the Bite of Seattle website
