KEXP & Seattle Center Presents Concerts at the Mural 2016

rotation bucket

Seattle residents, workers and visitors can enjoy free outdoor concerts Friday evenings in August at Concerts at the Mural, presented by KEXP and Seattle Center.

The series brings live music to the Mural Amphitheatre stage for end-of-the-week entertainment featuring some of the region’s best music – along with noted national artists – starting at 5:30 PM, Fridays, August 5th – 26th, at Seattle Center. Gates open at 5:00 PM.

While 2016 marks the 9th year of the series, it is the first for KEXP as a resident organization of Seattle Center, a much anticipated and welcomed move that serves to further strengthen the existing partnership. The Friday evening concerts continue the KEXP and Seattle Center tradition of starting the summer weekends off with a blast of engaging, all-ages culture.
