An update on Upstream in 2019
Our Partners

Corporate Partners

Upstream works with partners who want to thoughtfully and authentically connect with artists and fest attendees in innovative ways. If you share our passion for music discovery and are interested in a corporate partnership with Upstream, hit up our Partnership team.



Community Partners

Upstream has partnered with our Seattle neighbors to help create a fest and summit that reflect just how passionate we are about music discovery and artist education. We couldn’t have done it without these community partners.

Cultural Partners

Upstream is a uniquely Northwest fest and summit thanks in part to our cultural partners who share our passion for local music discovery and artist support.

Host Committee

We get by with a little help from our friends. Upstream Fest + Summit is possible thanks to the support and insights from our Host Committee.
