Well, it’s here. After a three-part rollout over the last month and a half, we now know the complete bajillion-band lineup for the second annual Upstream Music Fest + Summit.

The splashiest names in part three of the drawn-out trilogy are recently reunited punk bands Jawbreaker and Hot Snakes. Pop-punks and emo progenitors Jawbreaker reunited in 2017 for a handful of dates, including a benefit gig in Olympia where bassist Chris Bauermesiter now resides.

Last fall post-hardcore faves Hot Snakes announced their first headlining tour since a previous 2011 reunion run, along with their first new album in 14 years. The Sub Pop-issued “Jericho Sirens” drops tomorrow.

The two bands will join previously announced Miguel, the Flaming Lips, Cut Copy, Little Dragon and more on Upstream’s main stages. The second-year fest is set to take over more than 15 bars, clubs and makeshift venues around Pioneer Square June 1-3. Early-bird ticket prices start at $60 for a single day and $140 for a weekend pass.

Other highlights from the final unveiling include Seattle treasure Murder City Devils, rapper BJ the Chicago Kid, electric Bay Area rapper Kamaiyah and recent Sound Off! winner Micaiah Sawyer. Check out a few more of the highlights below or peruse all 200-some acts here:
