Head into the heart of Pioneer Square to one of our 15+ venues, many guest curated by a wide range of music experts including Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, Consequence of Sound, and Sub Pop Records. Along the way you could bump into your favorite local artist crossing Occidental Park or grab a drink next to the drummer you saw perform hours before—Upstream offers a truly unique and personal attendee experience.

The Sound Lot features TWO main stages—the Amazon Music Main Stage and KEXP Stage—featuring main stage acts including Miguel, The Flaming Lips, Cut Copy, Little Dragon, Hot Snakes, SUPERDUPERKYLE, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Zola Jesus, Tacocat, Valerie June and The True Loves, as well as a variety of food, libations and activities. The Sound Lot is the perfect home-base for three days of music discovery in the heart of Seattle.
