Upstream Music Festival is having its inaugural festival this year in downtown Seattle. The lineup is a prime example of the talent that’s coming out of the Northwest right now, featuring over 200 artists at every stage of their careers across stages expertly curated by industry leaders, record label, musicians themselves, and ore.

Upstream will also feature a Summit this year, which will consist of sessions for emerging artists, industry experts and creative collaborators from the PNW to dive into how to succeed in the changing music business. Speakers will include Quincy Jones, Macklemore and Kill Rock Stars record label President Portia Sabine.
