Upstream Music Fest + Summit returns to Pioneer Square for its second year on June 1-3. As festival goers may remember from last year, one of the most unique parts about Upstream is its utilization of guest curators to build out their club stages. It’s a tradition they’ll cement this year with a roster of new and familiar names, from record labels to icons.

New this year are stages helmed by local favorites like SIFF, City Arts, Can Can, KEXP’s own Street Sounds, and not to mention the legendary Nirvana bassist Kris Novoselic. Northwest labels Sub Pop, Barsuk, K, Tender Loving Empire, and Votiv. Chicago-based music blog Consequence of Sound will also be on-site along with Seattle’s Do206 and their Canadian affiliates Do250 and Do604. Kate Becker will host a stage celebrated the 25th anniversary of The Old Fire House Teen Center while other up-and-coming local collectives and business like etc Tacoma and International Girl Gang also help round out this stacked roster of curators.

Check out the full list of curators and order your early bird tickets for the fest today.
