The creativity and DIY spirit of the Northwest is in our streets and our studios, at our soundchecks and our DJ booths. It pours from the airwaves of local radio and grows inside prolific venues. This region has been redefining the music industry for decades, and our success stories span genres and generations. Jimi emerged here, so did Macklemore. From HEART to the Head and The Heart, Shabazz Palaces to ODESZA. Upstream Fest + Summit celebrates the sound of the Northwest and intends to develop a unique industry experience that fosters and supports artists at every level of their career.
