Upstream Music Fest + Summit: Full Lineup Announced

Full Upstream Lineup 4.6

On May 11-13, Upstream Music Fest + Summit will descend upon Pioneer Square with over 300 local and national acts. Back in February, the first wave of artists whet our appetites with names like Flying Lotus, AlunaGeorge, Shabazz Palaces, Beat Connection and Snarky Puppy. Now it’s finally here — the full lineup!

There’s a lot to parse with the 300+ artists on the lineup.  It offers some of everything: the tenacious riffs of Dinosaur Jr. and METZ, the hypnotic beats of Jlin, and the thrilling synth-pop of Poliça and Kristin Control. Keeping with Upstream’s desire to showcase local talent, there’s an overwhelming amount of Northwest artists to bask in on the lineup, including: Edmonds-based rapper Jay Park, The Long Winters, Helms Alee, Sunny Day Real Estate vocalist Jeremy Enigk, The ThermalsPorter Ray, Deep Sea DiverGazebos, and many more.

Emerging artists from Portland, Boise and Vancouver will also be joining us at Upstream, helping showcase the full breadth of the region. Seattle will excitedly welcome acts like Portland’s QuasiThe ThermalsThe Last Artful, Dodgr; Boise’s Magic SwordWestern Daughter, and Thick Business; and Vancouver’s Art d’Ecco, Belle Game, and Said The Whale.

All of the artists performing have been curated by our region’s most trusted music influencers – Upstream’s lead curator Meli Darby plus a team of guest curators such as KEXP, Sub Pop, Showbox Presents, Barsuk Records, and Marco Collins. Check out the full line-up and schedule here.
