Spring is here, and music festival season is kicking into high gear with Upstream. The Pioneer Square festivities, from June 1st to 3rd, will feature headliners The Flaming Lips, Miguel, and Jawbreaker. That’s a pretty stellar line up right there, but feel free to check the rest of the roster: Little Dragon and Cut Copy are pretty stellar too. Acts perform at different venues around the square: make sure to get a map. This is a great opportunity to explore all the Square has to offer—put on comfortable shoes and get ready for days of dancing, walking, and general celebration.
Seattle is enjoying its second year of Upstream, thanks to Paul Allen (who’s a music lover). If you’re seeking success in the industry, you’re in luck. The summit that coincides with the concerts features educational events related to new music, the indie market, contracts and licensing, and more. Headed to Seattle for the festival?
